Give Us Freshness and Beauty Not Ruins

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Dryness and despair

Slithers in

 

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Restlessness nervousness

In body and mind

 

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Fighting and arguing

  By humans

 

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Chaos and confusion

What will life be?

 

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and war zones

Images reappearing

 

What is life without beauty

and freshness from the rain?

Sadness and hopeless

Of Refugees

 

Life with beauty

And freshness from the rain

Red roses by the window

Moistened with rain drops

Happiness and smiles

In the morning

Waking up with beauty

In front of my eyes

Last night there was a heavy rain.  I slept comfortably.  It was a change from the heat of August summer month.  I was happy for my plants at the backyard receiving plentiful water from the rain.  I peeked out the window in my bedroom after I got up in the morning.  I saw beautiful red roses, and the green leaves of the rose, the Grapefruit tree, and ivy leaves on the wall.  They are more beautiful than usual from the rain drops that cling to them.  They were the best images for me to capture, reminding me of their beauty and freshness.

While I was organizing the pictures, the words came to me.  I grabbed the pen and my feelings poured down through the ink as the message I presented above.
