Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...
I, as an artist, see it everywhere,

In the porosity of old wood,
the wrinkles of an old woman,
the immaculate skin of a new born,
the geometric perfection of a spiders web.

The examples of beauty in this world
are endless.
Bur open to interpretation
and I, for one, find perfection
in imperfection.

As Jesus found good in all
the imperfect disciples he chose,
I find perfection in the mish mash
of the world around me.

The leaves randomly falling on the lawn,
the trees growing where they like,
the squirrels and lizards abounding
wherever they wish.

Ants scampering up plants
with great industry,
going where is unknown,
but they know.

All is beauty...
and when I finally realized that,
I became peaceful.
