the gift of attention

mountain shadows

Gently
Cloud shadows stroke the earth
The solar spotlight pans
Across slope and dell
Highlighting individuals
Celebrating communities
Drawing attention to
The taken-for-granted ones

 Flowers too
Emphasise otherwise overlooked
Individuals
In the grey-green bush
But flowering is attention sought
The true gift comes unwarranted
The kindly light
Of a loving gaze
