Some people view the world as tragic
and full of impending doom
but I see the universe as magic
if you take time to smell the bloom.

The sweet yellow perfumed rose
full of secrets yearning to be told
take a breath, and plunge your nose
breathe in its honeyed golden folds.


Or pause to watch a blue dragonfly
while in his dynamic aerial flight
his magical antics seem to defy
logic and reason, what a pure delight!


And if after this, you still fail to see
the magical universe laid before you
perchance, my friend, you should climb a tree
and then you may have a more positive view.
