Do you see it?
The double rainbow that rain grew
or the eagle that soared on high
casting shadows at your feet.
Do you feel it?
The pain, the ache, the
inner blood-letting that is known
as Love? Is it in you?
Can you hear it?
As the wind wafts across your
brow to cool your fevered
mind, can you hear the
melodies of Life?
Can you smell it?
The world is a veritable flower
garden of odors and sensations,
but are your senses attuned?
Do you live it?
Are your senses alive, receptive
and reaching outward, or do
you despair, and look
where you only hear voices of the past,
only see the ugliness you’re fed?
Can’t join in because you’re bred
to believe you’re not
The world is beautiful and we are children
of the world.
Yet some people refuse to see.
Do not close your senses to the
beauty we’ve been allowed to share.
Open up like the flower,
drink in the beauty of the world,
and you will see …
The voices will fade
and you, too, will be Beauty.
