See the Beauty

No matter how hard it seems to find beauty in our every day life these days, there's always room for the good feelings.

See the Beauty

Of each day and night
Unfold like silky petals of a cherry blossom
Or twinkle like a starlit speckled black canvass
Opposite attractions everywhere you turn.

Spring into positive action and
Persist, for the love of life
Feeling that will push you forward
Like a "jack-in-the-box"
To seek higher ideals.

Search the goodness, wholeness of life -
Reveal the bright colors, red and orange,
Organic yellow, sweet and sour,
Sparkling and vivid, like champagne
And share them with your loved ones.

Thus, we can ensure that life will last forever
As we remember it, even for this moment
Of timeless beauty -
All lit up and priceless for you to enjoy
Even now.
