Linda M. Stitt


Look.
Open the eyes of your heart
and regard the garden.

Look with wisdom,
withholding judgement;
look with acceptance
at what is
and set aside
what should be.

See the coming into being
and the decay,
the arising
and the passing away.

Look deeply
into the essence
of all manifestation;
look at the commonplace,
it needs no change
or alteration.
Every thing is imbued
with the beauty of creation.

That which is seen
with love
is lovely.
