Its hard to believe its Monday already, my post and included Poem this Morning is just a reminder that while your getting your week going , don’t forget to take the odd moment to slow down and take a look at the world around you, it’s Spring-time so take just a few moments and check out what’s really happening in the world – your meeting / phone call or email can wait for a while πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Donkey of brown

By : Patricia Higgins

Please let me know
Why is it that you go so slow?
He turned round gently and to me said
I have some sense in my little brown head.

Monday Donkeys 2.

By hurrying so as you go by
You miss the beauty in earth and sky.
So I took his advice and looked around,
And I saw diamonds in dew drops on the ground.

Daises that dance in the sun’s golden ray,
Things I missed as I hurried each day.
Gold in the buttercups, clouds in the blue,
What the donkey had said was perfectly true.

  2. I am taking a look at the world around me and at this moment I am deciding I do not care for the look of the snow which has been coming down all morning. Will await Wednesday, which is supposed to be “not” snowing.

  3. This is such a magical time of year. A very timely post and I’d never read that poem. I did a lot of looking about me this weekend so this one really resonated with me.
