Without the daily occurrences

There would be no poetry

We all look for the grandeur

There is nothing wrong with that

Except we tend to miss the glorious

Within the small, the tedious, the mundane

For wisdom plainly speaks

The greatest goodness is in the earth

It is the poet who discovers it

Then attempts to reveal it through simple paper

Simple pen

A tree gave its life so a greater beauty can be expressed

A simple paper

A simple pen

Just one more simple thing

Hiding in the winepress

Awaiting the announcements of the angels

Awaiting the arrival of hope, of power, of truth

To cause discovery to come to be

    The dandelion photograph is a perfect illustration of a daily glory. They may be weeds, but the fullness, symmetry, delicacy, and buttery yellow color all speak of beauty! Thank you for the reminder that in the trivial is treasure. (P.S. Thank you also for becoming a follower of my blog, From the Inside Out. I pray that, when you’re able to visit, you’ll find meaning and encouragement there.)
