Things that make you

Stop and smile

Focus and pause

A little while


What captures your eye

And makes you look

What grabs your soul

And sets the hook


Passions we have

We can’t ignore

To what we’re driven

We must explore


Chef in the kitchen

Begins to cook

Feels like the bishop

That got the rook


A builder steps back

Admires the house

Proud as a cat

That caught the mouse


The musician plays

And performs the song

To which the crowds

Sing along


We all have gifts

It’s only fair

They benefit others

And we must share


Some are inherent

Others unique

Most take work

To hone technique


We live our lives

The way we must

It’s vital our compass

Collects no dust
