In Plain Sight

by James Zealy

Fragile simple beauty
Is not noticeable
Even in plain sight

Yellow petals reach
Skyward as if to say
Come to me please

Brown curly haired waif
Approaches and answers
The petals plea

Revelation of sight
Miraculous wonderment appease
Answers Jonquil bequest

Tiny hand flat footed knelt
Extends to meet
And touches beauty in plain sight


Author's Note: My daughter was 2 when we knew she could see. We took the most profound picture of her kneeling flat footed, and reaching for a yellow jonquil. simple beauty at its best.
