It is so beautiful
Colours streaming through
My eyes are drawn
To all the rainbows strewn
Across the sky
And along pavements run
By children laughing
In their search of fun
It is so beautiful

The colours of the world
It is the majesty
Of heaven’s love unfurled
It is so beautiful
My heart has come undone
The weeping moon
Has given way to sun
I’m but a child
Before the hues arrayed
It is just love
In beauty here displayed

Between many perspectives, and instincts/impulses, therefore, and to include them all in…
