Beauty Everywhere - Poem by derrick foster

I have seen beauty

In the eyes of my friend,

In the smile of a child

In wisdom of the aged



I have seen beauty

On a ride across a river

On a bus going down town

On a plane heading home



I have seen beauty

While walking in rain

While strolling in sun

While laying in grass



I have seen beauty

In the look of a stranger

In the arms of a lover

In the heart of family



I have seen beauty

At the back of a train

At a café on the corner

At a gas station at the end of the road



I have seen beauty

While flying across sky

While running in the park

While sitting in a garden



There is beauty all around

Just waiting to be found

In the air and on the ground

Also in wide o-en places



I have seen beauty

In private reverie

In contemplating life

In sitting idly on a couch



I have seen beauty

While staring into space

While floating on water

While riding on a bus



I have seen beauty

Looking in a mirror

Gazing out to sea

Leaning against a wall



I have seen a variety of beauty

In my minds eye

In my hearts murmur

In my own hands



I have felt beauty

Form another's point of view

From those who speak true

From living in the world





I have heard beauty

In the gurgle of a new born

In the rebellion of a teen

In the sigh of an adult



To hear such beauty

Is quite a relief?

And on days I can't take it

I welcome the call

Of beauty in us all



I have touched beauty

By befriending others

By listening to their plea

By helping them to see



There is beauty

In places we don't look

In the pages of a book

On the faces of foreigners



I have seen beauty

At the end of the street

From a man on a bike

To the woman on a hike



I have witnessed beauty

While standing in the cut

Under the radar

Looking from afar



There is beauty

In the ether

In the air

Where beauty can be found Everywhere
