The world gleams with splashes of happiness
The grey sidewalk cracks, manifesting a rainbow peeking from underneath
The sky turns the color of crushed dahlia, with specs of an orange delight
The silhouette of a shy moon makes it way up the horizon

The dusk breathes a soft stream of silver onto the heavens
The flicker of light switches shifts the world onto a new spectrum
The invitation of the bed appeals to our mind as we collapse
Lost in the land of dreams, snoring peaceful bubbles of glory

The silver blessing of the dawn soon arrives at our doors
As the sun pours down torrents of light upon us
We open our eyes and cradle our vessels close to our hearts
Watching dew drops blanket our windowsills and shimmer in the morning lustre

As we step out of our cocoons we see
Thousands of dreams and hopes nestled in vessels similar to ours
We see the crinkling eyes of joy and the creasing foreheads of worry
We see the upturned lips of gratitude and the callused hands of anger

We look at the world through a magnifying glass one day
And suddenly all the little details in the world swell
We see millions of flaws and millions of tiny perfections
Our minds registers all the details that we look at but we really don’t see
