Look around you.

Notice the people smiling, looking up,

Looking around.

Look around you.

Find the magic in something ordinary,

Apples growing outside a home,

Light casting the shadows of flowers,

The haze above a mountain lake.

Look around you.

A fountain that no longer works,

Is there beauty in what no longer works? 

An old man paints the fountain,

A girl finds beauty in his scrawls,

Smiling, she looks up,


The haze above the lake,

The house with flowers and apples,

Pulling out a book, she inks a memory.
