The beauty of the place that I live

There is a beauty in the place that I live

A simple beauty that stuns me
A beauty that makes my breath catch
A beauty that amazes me

A beauty that reminds me that not every place is beautiful
A beauty that reminds me that where I came from was not beautiful
A beauty that lets me know that who I am is always (and always has been beautiful)

A beauty that makes me appreciate neutral
A beauty that lives in neutral colors, neutrality of position, neither high nor low, dark nor light
A beauty that is common--all around me

All I have to do is open my eyes to see the beauty
All I have to do is close my eyes and be ok with the things that are past, over, done with
All I had to do was open my heart to the beauty

Because the beauty of now
stuns me
makes my breath catch
amazes me.
