Greener grass

Isn’t the grass always looking greener elsewhere? What do you think?

There is place not far away

I think about it every day

Cos this place here is not the same

And I really don’t want to complain

But the grass looks greener over there

So I think it’s only fair

To take a look

At a different book

We often wish for something new

When where we are has grown a cloudy view

With restless hearts we feel empowered

As a dark cloud over us has towered

So I’ll pack my bags and find that meadow green

I think you know what I mean

Sometimes a fresh start can resurrect our souls

And make us once again as whole

It’s worth a try for sure

So once again I’ll close my door

And open this one, it looks quite nice

And I could be happy in a thrice

But I believe what really counts

It really does in essence amount

To not where you are but who you share you time with …

anywhere you can live …

But loved ones close is what serves our spirit best

And really that is the quest

To be happy and content

And with that I’ll leave this vent

I can see that grass over there

It’s calling me

I’ll drink my tea

And I’ll be gone

So long!

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
