Thursday Morning Music Shuffle – Voices Carry Mix


Whenever I walk
and take the time
I find the marvels of the world
are at my fingertips
within my sight 
over my shoulder

Circumstance and crises and a cacophony of clanging cymbals
can distract me from all of the wonders to behold
but whenever I walk
and take the time
I see it all
it’s pleasant
