"Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, pretty heart, and pretty soul."

This is short, but it is effective to me
There is a ton of life going on outside which we don’t notice. It could be bugs, mice, and, heck, even trees, grass, and leaves. If you shut up long enough, you can hear what’s going on around you. Whether it’s bugs dancing around you to the sound of music only they can hear, or trees whispering to each other, and then it getting spread by the wind. It could even be the wind that you hear, blowing around you, tickling your ears and neck, and playfully parting your hair.

I wrote this because I noticed we don't take care to notice the things around us.

Great job on this poem! I can relate. Sometimes I don't take the time to notice nature when I really should. Great job with the energy and imagery in this poem. I really like the part where you wrote: "Whether it's bugs dancing around you to the sound of music only they can hear" because of the imagery. Keep writing! :)
