When I Look Upon A Flower

Miraculous evidence?
Miraculous evidence? | Source

When I gaze upon a tree

I see a living, breathing thing

Not just a plant put here to give me oxygen

When I look at my life

I do not see it as a constant struggle to keep up with my neighbors and obtain the next material thing

I see it more as a striving for balance and to gain an understanding

And insight as to what my mission is here on this planet

When I look upon the stars

I see these beautiful bodies of light that were here long before me

And will still be there when I am gone

When I look upon a flower

I see a miracle

Evidence that something higher cared to create beauty right here on earth

And for me

For now

That is enough

- S.
