Oblivious

COURTESY OF PIXABAY

Too often
I go through my days oblivious

Heedless
of the beauty in the blue skies above me

Insensible
to the beauty of the life beneath my feet

Trapped
in my head and unaware

Thinking
but unthinking

Self
absorbed and unobservant

Not
noticing the small black dots

On the ladybug’s back

Or even the ladybug itself

Deaf to
the songs of the birds overhead

Blind to
the brilliant colors of the rainbow

Oblivious
of all but my small concerns

Divine
One, wake me now

Help me
be fully present

To the
miracle of life all about me

Set me
free

From oblivion
