Paint Splatters

At first I was angered.
At the vandals who had used the paint can to deface the sidewalk ...
Without regard to others who walk along this same path ...
Not caring for the plants splattered in bright yellow paint ...
For the critters who wander here as well ...

Then I saw the hearts.
The beauty in the ugly ...

And realized that, as in life, good really CAN be brought out of adversity!
