What’s a picture worth.

Light cascaded in through the old kitchen window, specalling the pieces of dust dancing slowly in the air, daring one another to land.  The kitchen table had seen many days like today, full of sun and a quiet peace that resonated through out the  home.  On the darkened circular slab of well worn wood, sat a metallic dish curved and concaved to form a bowl.  The sun reflected a scarred and tired face as the dish had been used for many years, never complaining or groaning at the work it must do.  No, it sat with a shining, gold, glimmer on its lip, happy to carry the sweet delights it held.

Full, almost to overflow sat friends of the table and bowl, now leaning back, catching the radiant glow from the light filtering in.  The Banana was reclined, eyes closed bathing in the beautiful day, only one brown spot decorated its yellow belly.  Apple stood at attention to Banana’s side, squinting as the sun glistened off the apple’s tight red skin, which shown white with a happy glow.  Orange lay sleeping in its round pot marked skin, head turned to the brilliant light forcing patches of light to bounce from its back.  While Pare was fully aware of the suns delightful beam, it stood stretching itself as tall as it could go, the sun poured generously upon its discolored out stretched torso.  And last but no least all the grapes hung purple from their small brown stims, lazing about as some fell over the lips of the bowl trying to escape the canter of light beaming down slow.

It was a sight to behold all the friends as they sat, one after one falling into shadow, as the sun began to go flat.  Up over the house, the sun it climbed, leaving all the friends inside to sit in darkness, waiting till the next time the sun would shine.

When we define what something is worth, only by our own perspective we do a disservice to all the amazing things in life, that if only looked at with a different pair of eyes, might change the entire way we feel or hopefully the way we see.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
