Fly on Green Leaf

I used to think beauty
as apart from me,
an exotic thing
only seen in magazines.
Not now. Not anymore.
Not since I stepped out my door
and really looked around.
Beauty abounds!
For even a common housefly
catches the eye
when sunning itself
on a luminous, green shelf.
So in the mirror I now gaze
with nary a nasty phrase
and wish for you the same:
beauty, claimed!
