An Eye for Beauty

"I've got a surprise for you."

"Aren't they beautiful, mama?"

A bouquet of flowers!
(or an handful of weeds?)

Who could classify something so beautiful as "weeds"?

We see what we want to see.

and, I am beholding beauty...
a beautiful smile
on a beautiful girl
holding beautiful flowers
from a beautiful field
on a beautiful hill
in a beautiful part of the country
on this beautiful planet.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
and my eyes are full of beauty today.

Lord, open my eyes to look for the beauty
in everyone
and everything around me.
