Beauty

Oh, God, every time I think I’ve seen

all the beauty you have to show me

you surprise me

with yet another flamed sunset

with the reflection of a stork in calm pond waters

with an insight of wisdom

with a painting magnificent

with the smile of an infant

and I, ever insatiable,

implore you, please, show me more. -Helen Bar-Lev

Stop and think for a moment, what is the most beautiful thing or person you have seen today? Was it cumulus clouds against a summer blue sky? Or maybe it was the face of a dear friend or a child. What is the most beautiful thing you have experienced today? Was it a generous gift, or a kiss form a special beloved or a shared moment of mirth?
