    lately mostly ugly
    things have been
    visible to me
    constant thoughts
    twirl in my head
    bad news of
    shootings
    killings
    child abuse
    over shadowing
    my muse

    today~
    driving down
    the boulevard
    i witnessed
    something
    beautiful
    i saw
    something
    wonderful
    some might consider,

    "No big deal"

    it warmed me and
    thrilled my heart
    i eased up from
    the accelerator
    so i could take in
    the memorable sight
    they were holding hand,
    bonding
    walking,
    talking,
    laughing,
    playing
    sharing quality time
    as they faded with
    the distance... I smiled
    and said,

    "there goes hope
    a father with his son"


    so I decided to....

    Scribeaboutit! It helps.
