Seeing the Magic



Dear World,
When I open my eyes 
this morning,
feeling a little sad,
please remind me to see
the beauty
in what I already have.

Let me regain
the enchantment -
July skies, cottony clouds,
the willow by the pond
with its branches all bowed,
the horse in the meadow,
the doves
in the trees,
 the gift of a day
to spend just as I please.

Remind me, always, 
to Keep Looking Up,
beyond all the what-if's
that clutter my cup.
In place of yearning for beauty
that's farther away,
may I  reclaim the magic
of this summer day.

    Wise words Sherry! One tends to forget of the goodness already within but still wanting more. If only one opens up. Many are just not able to. Nicely!
