See the beauty of this world today.
Open your eyes and receive
the green heart of the trees
as they dress for Thanksgiving
in leaves of gold and crimson.
Open your eyes and see
the last days of red flowers
surrendering in ecstasy
to the birds that still linger
after summer has gone.
Open your eyes to the tiny
a swing for the physically challenged child
waiting in the playground.
Bowls full of water in front of the restaurant
for the thirsty neighborhood dogs.
Words of wisdom
hanging from a tea bag.
Open your eyes to the glorious
that turns the trees
into candelabras brightening the yard.
See the magical sunset
throwing a golden spell down the street.
Dance with the spirits of the breeze
lifting the scattered leaves up
into the luminous skies.
Open your eyes and your heart today
to receive the beauty of this world .
