The Beauty of Life…for Adoracion Paragas Sanque

The Beauty of Life

(for Adoracion Paragas Sanque)

By Apolinario Villalobos


The magnificence of creation is such

That all we need to do is open our eyes

Though the extent of our perception ends

Where the earth meets the sky –

It still oozes with awe-inspiring sights.

In loving God, we love life…

Gratitude is what to Him we show

For everything He blessed us with

There’s nothing else that we can do.

Even the whiff of the wild grass

Undulating in the wind’s caress

And the buzzing of the busy bees

That fills the air with lively drone

Lightens up, even a heavy stone.

Light feeling, ecstasy, happiness –

They grip us tight, though tenderly

As we delight in the beauty of life

That God made for all of us to see!
