Although I had sent it to Melody, realized the poem wasn't on my own blog. The poem just came to me after I read her post on Aug. 10 about how different her Summer turned out to be and how much her husband was enjoying the new red car. It reminded me of how my husband and I discovered how plans can blow away like dandelion fluff on a gentle Summer day and it's the shared moments that count most of all. Here it is:
Red Car Won
The plans I made like petals fell
When moments blossomed new
And all the planned tomorrows
Were nothing but 'to do.'
I saw with sharing, love and care
Joy truly filled the while--
As friends and family brightened days,
And red car caused a smile.
We each can find a treasure
In moments seeming small,
Like diamonds shine our givings...
Reminding, "Love Is All."
