The Perfection that is You

Haven’t you realised that

the beauty that you see in each flower petal

the awe you feel as the sun rises 

and sets over the horizon…

The feelings you have within

that are invoked by

the rapture of a bird song

the freedom of the rain

the perfect blue of the sky

the sweet smell of the grass…

Don’t you yet know
the laughter of children

the tears of joy

the expanse of your heart 

as it holds all the love you have within…


everything is but a reflection 

of the perfection that is you.
