Finding Beauty and Loveliness

I wanted to find
 Beauty and Loveliness
I set out on a quiet journey. . .no one but myself
I was determined to find beauty everywhere. .
And I did. . .
 Each moment has it own beauty
 Which has never been seen before
And will never be seen again. Ralph Waldo Emerson
 I found beauty in the mountains that surround me. .
And the valley in which I live. .
The azure sky above me
The white to grey clouds that loom over my head. .
 I found beauty in the lost and forgotten
And in that which is well taken care of. . .
 I found beauty in the colors that nature so gladly shares. .
From the gray of the clouds,
To the brightness of the lavender Lilac. . .
The green of the grass, and the abundance of blossoms
All gave me spectacular splendor 

The quiet softness of the beauty that I found today
Lifted my spirits and comforted my soul. . . .
