The View

©2003 by Susan Noyes Anderson


At times, we look out on the world


and gain a clearer view,

but often we must fall to earth

to witness what is true.

Gorgeous photos, Sue! Were they taken in Ireland? They look so familiar to me!

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Ah, so true! :)

Becky Jane said...

Lovely words and pictures. I agree, that when we are humble and on our knees our view increases. I've seen you commenting on Karen M. and Grandma Honeys blogs and just had to stop by and meet another Sister. Queens with 4 eyes ROCK! Happy Thursday!

Hi Sue,

I just loved your "view" post. Great minds think a like. Wonderful photos to go with your words.

I love your view on the world..

Donna said...

I'm like that...a Pollyanna looking at the bright side of life.

And boom...the rug is falling out from under me just now. Just found out that chemo starts Tuesday for 16 weeks and then radiation and then more surgery. Wow. It's hard to look on the bright side. But I can do it, I CAN do it!
Love your beautiful photos.

I feel like this is how I've been living lately. Finally came back to earth and have a better perspective.

Yes, sometimes we do have to land, don't we? But flying high is good sometimes too.

yaya said...

I love your "view"...and I love the truths behind it. Many times I've had to look up for the inspiration to look forward! Thanks!

Amy said...

You are a wordsmith with great power. You can (and have) changed lives with your words, Sue. Thank you for sharing them with us so often.

You are a fine poet.

Forrest Gump's mother told it like it is, Sue. Life really is like a box of chocolates.

One of my favorite hymns is "Be Still My Soul." This is what we all need to do at times, to put the world we live in back into perspective.

Much love to you, my friend.

Those pictures really do fit the words of the poem, Sue. I must say, they do enhance a great many of your poems. I still find it amazing that you can find such great pictures to fit your equally great words.
