Golden Moment

It’s time for a weekly quotation inspired image quote from Debbie at Travel With Intent

“Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”  Henry Miller

He once was part
of my world,
the bloke down
the road.
He shared
his garden
often walking
through the gate
with treasures
to enrich
my life
to add colour
to my world
giving me
golden moments

Geoff is no longer with us but every so often his gifts of gold appear in my garden
