Beauty in a Moment

I wanted so badly to capture the beauty of the moment. It was so simple, and yet, the happiness was overwhelming. Water filled the crisp morning air as Rufus pressured washed the playground equipment. He brought his dog Milly with him, and Linnie and my mom stood by the fence talking. The smiles of just pleasant company made me want to cry. A simple act of kindness, yet it changed my mother’s outlook on the entire day.


in a moment,

framed by falling

water drops

and mini rainbows

in crisp autumn air.

Such a simple act,

one that breathes life

into a shattered heart,

gives hope where the

world sucked it dry.

“Peace”, it says.
