So it’s Friday again, and this time I’m meeting the day as it begins, still up at 1:00 a.m. This week's Five Minute Friday prompt is “view.” I decided to take a look at that for a while before retiring.
Five minutes: Go.
View is larger than sight
because view sees beyond what is there
to what it means,
I have a long view
and it helps me see
and what’s not.
When I say there’s a lovely view,
some people just look quickly and nod agreement,
but others know
that I mean the sight has meaning:
it is lovely because of something,
something other than its appearance.
I suppose in my world,
this one, I mean,
the one everyone can see,
appearances mean more than views.
The way I see it,
life is all about the view.
