Afternoon Might Be More Splendid

A  L  O  H  A !

To children a toy is 
a whole world. 
To childish adults 
the whole world 
is just a toy. 

Stress and fear are 
illusions with real effects.

The sun has a great morning: 
fingering a dark world to life, 
painting with light, 
growing brighter and higher. 
At noon, she feels 
what is ahead. But 
understands that afternoon 
can be more splendid 
than the morning, and 
sunset is her masterwork. 

"Be not sad. 
Be like the Sun 
at midday" 
 I Ching


Thank YOU
            Fondly, cloudia

Sadly too many adults have (and are) treated our beautiful world like a toy. And not a toy they look after either.

The first one makes me think of the saying, "Live Everyday of Your Life."

Sadly you are spot on, and perhaps one day they'll come to discover toys break. Then what?
