Prized Collection

Entranced, Iím forced to stop and stare
every time I see them thereó
glass bottles in the sun,
Jewel-colored, every one,
making rainbows in the room
like a peacockís fancy plume.

A whistling teakettle signals me
itís time for a cup of Oolong tea.
For the moment all is right.
The bottles, the tea, the slant of light
make me happy just to be
alive and able to taste and see.

The poetic writing coupled with the artistic photo remind me how blessed we are to have senses -- what a gift from GOD!
