Wonder and Awe

butterfly-142506_1280

Put aside for a moment
your restless urge
to compare things,
acquire, use or change them.
Look at them now, just look.
Listen, just listen.
Be with them, just be
and allow yourself
to taste again
the elixir
of wonder
and awe.

The Spirit Within

aloe-1354473_1280

Unaware of the Spirit within,
I look at my reflection
and am drawn to my flaws
and imperfection.
Aware of the Spirit within,
I look at my reflection
and am awakened
to a deeper vision
of beauty and grace.
