Beauty is not always found
In the eyes of another…
Sometimes I see it
When I am a passenger in a car
I purposefully look into the
Front windows of random houses..
Straining to see what their life is like..
Is it prettier than mine?
Are they happy?
Are they lost?

I glimpse photos on a piano
Or a child sitting quietly reading
While the television tries its best to distract
But, the young eyes are glued onto the pages
And I try to imagine…..
What are they reading?
And what a BEAUTIFUL moment that is
To capture and witness…
To peek in and see a few seconds
Of a young life in the process of
Growing…learning…
While the sun sets around him
Turning the glass on the windows
The most remarkable shades of burnt orange….

I have caught couples
Embracing and kissing..
A fleeting gesture, reminding me
That love is alive in the world..
And that people still see the
Beauty in each other..

As I continue to glance
In various windows
I marvel at glorious works
Of art on various shelves, tables
I analyze the choice of colour
For their living room walls…
Sign in awe, at the sight
Of a row of cobalt blue vases
Being struck by the rays of the sun…
I smile, as I see a family gathered
Setting places at thier dinner table..
The center of many homes
Suddenly…
A overwhelming sensation of warmth
Rushes through my body…
Straight to my heart…
As my eyes rest on the most glorious vision…
An old, handmade quilt…
Obviously made with loving hands
Being wrapped around a sleeping child
As she is carried off to the land of dreams…
Where ALL things are possible…..
