Poetry Friday


Vantage Point


I'd like to think that if you took

all the mistakes I've made in my life,


if you gathered them up in a sunny field

and put colorful hats on each and every one


and then
if you flew up in a helicopter,
high overhead
to look down,


the large hatted herd

might actually be

a beautiful sight

to behold.

Now there's a lesson in perspective. :o)

I can DO that with my mistakes?

BRING ON THE HATS!

The problem with me? I'd want to peek under them to see what's there.

You can also put on bright socks -- but the hats are easier to see from above.
