Local Focus – Global Reach

Posted by MFish

I worked, years ago, in a office with cubicles
And kept M & M's on top of my desk.
The M & M's were in a lidded, glass jar.
I'd leave my cubicle, going near and far,
When the sound came to me from lidded jar.
Looking across the cubicles , I did see
My friends looking back at me.
It gave me pleasure, to know
That a little treat, was where they'd go.
Candy, while not a good choice to some,
Provided me the simple joy of having one.
Perhaps, I will submit or will propose
A story of when I had many boxes of Frangos.

How do you write about
what you don't know?
Through observation of daily
contact and comments?
I have noted the comments,
"I don't know what I am doing."
Discussions are often started by
"Do you remember?" and then
a struggle, by me to call forth
an answer to that question.
A question from me, in return,
as I try to "pin down" who or what.
A wrong guess is accompanied by
a "No, No, No" and a waving of hands.
Sometimes, I am lucky, in my guess,
but mostly I am not. I do try
to use a process of elimination but
the asking of questions, by me, brings
a response of "I don't know:; I can't
remember." Frustrating for us both.
Every day brings a new adventure
in this our life's journey.

The sunlight
spirals downward; caught
by the dust in the trees,
then burrows into the
piles of scattered leaves.
Life goes on, as Sun rays
spill toward the sheltered ground.
There is a golden silence
for the wind blows, not now.
It will resume in morning
hours, before the Rooster crows;.
Life is beautiful when you
hear the Songbird sing
about a song and ring
of light, from the Sun above
filled with warmth
and with love.
