Shifting focus

Though my focus is still inward,
captured by the thoughts and worries
that slide across the surface of my mind,
I still can sense,
somewhere outside me
-- or is that deeper in?--
the colors of the seasonal shifts
that occur whether I watch or not,
just as the sun
rises and sets
though I remain immersed in darkness.

Help me to notice the colors of my life;
to know that when I see them,
the time has come
to shift my focus away from me to You.

yes - shifting focus - it's so important - even when I know I need to look outside, there are still times that the inner focus casts a shadow over all I say and think and do...
