“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Dear Hole in the Leaf:
We see it,
the beauty that you encircle.
The world on the other end
This is the path to greatness
of nature and space.
This path of wood and gravel
leads us to the universe,
the one of beauty.
The one of green forests, azure oceans, purple mountains and fields of wheat.
This path of modest description
leads us to a world of over seven billion people,
who build, create, invent, repair, teach, or simply hang out.
This path of twists and turns
leads us to immeasurable wonders,
big and small.
Man-made damns, painted toads, castles and fjords
This path of life
leads us to unseen blessings
and emotional allure
of love and friendship and community
This path leads somewhere
to the beauty that is at our fingertips,
it’s right there,
through your hollow,
if we simply see it.
