Looking out onto the garden.
Camera in hand,
wanting to soak in all the beauty
before taking a photo.
This is the photo I took on that day.
I often feel such as that.
Is it because I am getting older?
I do not rush in, as I did in the past.
I do not long for the things that give me pain.
I do not need you in my life to make me a happy person.
As I sat on the bench, looking out onto the garden,
I felt the simple joy of happiness.
This photo reminds me,
that happiness is mine,
just for the asking.
Today is amazing,
This very moment is perfection.
