Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: "Look" By Izzie Hayes

By Izzie Hayes

Look further
Behold the little everyday smiles of the passing people
See the care in a friend’s eyes
Witness the unabashed boldness of a curious child.
The cheerful hello of a neighbor
And maybe think, the world isn’t so bad after all
Watch the vibrant sunset as the golden orb bids welcome
To the pale luminescent moon
See as the small delicate snowflakes land in people’s hair,
And blanket the Earth in a white shimmer.
As spring blooms, notice the dainty flowers as they
Emerge from their slumber.
Maybe  . . . just maybe. The world isn’t so bad after all
Put aside war, forget cruelty, forget pain.
Just for a moment.
And look
Look at the little things

That make our world beautiful.
