Daily Obstruction: Being Present

6 Jun


[Today’s Daily Obstruction is in the form of a philosophical poem.  Because why not?]

Life Passes You By as You Busy Yourself With More Important Things



If a breeze rustles through the leaves of a tree,

But everyone has their earbuds in,

Does it make a gentle sound?


If a bird sings a song,

But everyone is on the phone,

Does it sing as sweet?


If the sun bestows its light,

But everyone is in offices beneath the florescent glow,

Does it care?


If I am here

And you are there,

Do I love you less or more?


If the world goes about its daily chores

Without even a glance at Nature,

Will it one day wake up to discover

Life is as real as it is rare?
