Within Your Reach

God pours out His beauty,
There is nowhere it can't be.

It might sometimes get overlooked
But it's there within your reach.
A glance becomes a stolen look
The captured moment fades
Layer upon layer presented, All the world's a parade

Is the sound in the forest a sound if someone doesn't hear it? I say, yes.
If only the birds hear it, it's still beauty of the earth, fulfilling its purpose. I wonder how many times we glance at beauty only to look away and forget it. There must be endless such moments in a lifetime.
