This time of year it is not hard to find beauty for the eyes but, the mind must see it first!
I could be over come with the color of blue as summer soft-slips from Time's avenue...so,
May we find, as much with our minds as our eyes
The beauty of life’s lovely ‘thank-you surprise’
Lest in the hard fought delights of the day
Time is a teller for trouble’s dismay
But oh, if we look then thought soft-realizes
That life is a vendor of lovely surprises
And we are the spenders of it; may we find
Its lovely surprise with the eyes of the mind

We see through the eyes of our minds…
in love everything is, if not always beautiful, still at the least, bearable.
