Beautiful Ugly


How does one learn to see
the beauty in the ugly?
What catalyst transforms
that which has the illusion of
ugly, undesirable, unwanted
into blossoms of rare beauty?

It is the practice of gratitude
yes, one must practice seeing
all with transforming gratitude.

It is the way we practice
staying in the presence of God.
One does not change the world
only the way one sees the world.
seeing past the anger
frustration, emptiness
into the loving heart
of the Divine.
