This came through a group today, I liked it, so I'm sharing

See the Beauty

In your hectic life, during your impossibly busy day, it's important to see
the beauty in life.

Take a second to look at and appreciate something beautiful: flowers, birds,
trees, art, music, poetry, people.

Seeing beauty is free and easy. There's always something or someone
beautiful around you. All creations of God. Just like you!

Seeing beauty, however, takes learning to look a little deeper. You have to
really "look" to see the hidden beauty sometimes. Beauty isn’t always
obvious.

This is where your spiritual practice can really help. Tapping into your
spiritual senses brings beautiful realizations and revelations, through God's grace.

I get a poetry newsletter every morning. Some days I save things, most I don't. That's where some things come from during Poetry Month. Anyway, they had a piece yesterday that I liked and saved for future use and enjoyment. So imagine the humor I saw when I opened Perceval Press tonight when I got home and found said poem gracing the home page:

Trees
I am looking at trees
they may be one of the things I will miss
most from the earth
though many of the ones I have seen
already I cannot remember
and though I seldom embrace the ones I see
and have never been able to speak
with one
I listen to them tenderly
their names have never touched them
they have stood round my sleep
and when it was forbidden to climb them
they have carried me in their branches

"Trees" by W. S. Merwin, from The Compass Flower.
