when potential births itself unto the world

the brilliance within

brilliance is everywhere around us,
what we can lack is discrimination, discernment,
how to notice, how to develop the inherent,

the brilliant can hide within the dull,
and we need to learn to separate seed
from the chaff all around,
for example, every moment contains within itself
the possibility of photos that can open the eyes to wonder,
every moment poems can be found, aching to be written,
and sometimes my gift allows me to find
the photo and the poem that can work,

I can imagine stories and paintings and music
that always hide just beneath the surface
to be found by those with the right gifts to notice,

also, every person has greatness hidden within
that wants to be found and to be released,

how wonderful it is every time
that such potential births itself unto the world.
