Have You Stop to Enjoy Life Today?

Life can be so busy for us, and stopping to enjoy it doesn't seem to be on our lists of things to do. We work hard day in and day out, but we must learn to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We must make time to reflect and look at nature all around us. It gives a great feeling of existence and purpose. It helps to put things into perspective and to enjoy our lives here on earth.

I wrote a few Haikus on flowers. Flowers have such beauty and essence. It makes me feel so good inside. I thought I would share some with you. Enjoy!

Red Rose - Haiku
The mark of a red rose
Given to say “I love you”.
A touching moment.

The Jasmine Flower - Haiku
The scent of Jasmine
Fills the air with elegance.
A delightful treat.

Daisies - Haiku
Beautiful daisies
Opens its eyes to the dawn
A breathtaking view

I didn't, but if stopping by your blog and appreciating that's a really picture and very wise words, then I at least reflected about enjoying life daily, I guess.

Hi Melinda. This is so true. Sometimes we are in such a rush for everything that we miss the simple pleasures of life. You made a great point.
