In The Blink of an Eye

Magnificent things happen

And to think, you may miss them with
one single blink.

You can capture a lot in one second…
a friendly smirk, a lover’s glance, a child’s smile.
A tree dancing for us from afar.
An ocean singing us a lullaby with every crashing wave.

It’s sad to see some miss these moments
because they have their eyes closed.

Or worse, they have their eyes open
and have shut out the world around them.

No, there are extraordinary things out there.
And I intend to find the magnificent.
