Less I Am Than They

     Saturday morning, and I’m taking it easy today. Short and sweet it is. I have no thoughts currently running through the subway station of my mind, therefore here is a quick read for you all.

     Have a satisfying Saturday,

Jake.

Less I Am Than They

I see the mountain,

and it humbles me.

*

I respect the ocean,

but I fear the sea.

*

Then I watch the river,

flowing to be free.

*

And I know that they are all,

so much more than me.

    Wow ……… what a fresh layout today. Really nice Jack. How was Veterans Day for you? Warmest Regards, Michael.

    • My veteran’s day was very nice thank you Michael, I am so glad that you liked the “layout” today, because a day ishow long it took me to do it. “Old and slow is the way to go.” lol My wish for you is for serenity, if but foronly one day. (the day of your choosing) Jake.

    Wonderful poem, Jack. I loved the photographs too!

    • Thanks Denise, you have no idea what it takes for this “techno weinie” to figure out how to get the pics from one place to the other. Then to have to keep moving.. a. the text or.. b. the pictures to get them lined up correctly. After all ofthat I needed a fewbeers…But in retrospect, perhaps if I hadn’t had a few beersbefore I started, then… Ah, who cares, think I’ll have another!! lol
