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 smile
with the universe.

Today I accept
the invitation
that beauty brings.
