~Eye of the Beholder~

To you, it's just a flower
To me, it is a home
For a thousand tiny creatures
To live; to roam

To you it's just a bubble
To me, another world unfolds
Hidden in the spectrum is
A place of lore and tales of old

To you it's just a mirror
Me, a magic portal
Where anything can come to pass
And no one there is mortal

To you it is a swing
To me, a memory
Of good times as a child
Of no cares, peaceful; free

To you, only a raindrop
But I see a promise
From back when Noah built the Ark
Of hope and light and solace

To you I am a little weird
I'm sure others will agree
To you I am a far off stranger
But to God... I am me


The author's comments:
There's really no *one* meaning behind this poem. I guess when I was writing it, I sort of wanted to say, 'Hey, life's too short to rush past without smelling the roses. Call me weird if you want, but I actually see things in their full beauty- something you should think about doing.'
