Simpler Things

Beauty lies in little things,
both in the normal-
and the odd.
Smelling the roses
at the end of summer's season.
A smile, a wink, and a nod.
Butterfly's wings brush across my cheek.
A dream of a dear, old friend.
God's fingertips gracing the clouds
in His glory.
Are all to which my mind must tend.
A dandelion scatters upon the breeze-
it blows kisses in the wind.
When we leave the tangled cord
of strife behind,
the heartache of this life will rescind.
