Mini Vacation

Recently, I’ve been digitizing old pictures so they can be organized and safely archived. At times, this seems like taking a mini-vacation and it sparks a poem. The pictures were taken on a trip my wife and I took to Lake Tahoe in the early 1990’s.

Lake Tahoe

Water so deep;
Trees that surround;
The water so blue;
As we go around.

Lake Tahoe

The ripple of the waves;
Across this vast lake.
Riding in a boat;
Pictures to take.

Lake Tahoe

The mountains are rugged;
Snow-capped up so high.
Perfectly clear blue water
Didn’t want to say good- bye.

But looking back on the memories;
A trip to memory lane today;
Remembering amazing places;
The beauty of Creation on display.

Brings to me a cheerfulness
For what life may bring my way.
Prepared to always step ahead
With faith for every day.

    I enjoy writing inspirational poems and this one was sparked after I recently spent an afternoon digitizing old photos for safe keeping. I believe there are benefits to taking mini vacations down memory lane because they can be used to bring peace, calm, and cheerfulness as we step ahead.
