Reuniting With Beauty

It stops there!

All the greed, blindness,

hate, lies.

Out there!

 

I have been letting you in

Too much,

Too deep,

For too long.

I don’t even know my

own soul anymore,

My own peace. My head is filled

With your ill-will. No – Out There,

It stops Out There

 

Morning is here.

I awake to the newness

Of the day.

I awake to the adventure

It holds.

 

Today, like every day,

I have a chance to start over,

To greet the sun,

To smell the flowers,

To bathe in nature

And breathe her in.

 

Today I smileĀ 

With the universe.

 

Today I accept

The invitation

That beauty brings.
