Beauty is Simplicity

a poem by Brough Terry R

High in the tree tops, on a leaf,
a small droplet of water sits.
As the wind blows this droplet drips.
From the tip of the leaf to the
palm of my hand it hits. I now
sit and stare at this simple speck.

Why is it that the most simple
things in life contain such beauty?
Of all the wonders on earth, why
does this droplet create such awe?

To appreciate real beauty we
must stop and look. We must observe
nature in its simplicity.
For that is where true beauty is found.
