Last week, Colleen put up a challenge tagged Beauty and like you know, she brings out the fresh lyrics in me.
Whether in the eye of the Beholder
Or vested in the thing itself, I see Beauty
Sometimes revealed and loud, undeniable
Hidden, calm and not proud, not definable
It’s in the morning unfolding between dusk and dawn
Radiating from the eyes, dancing to the lips in smiles
A giggle and it spreads its arms in affection, that’s Beauty!
It’s the stolen kiss between spouses in a crowd
Lost in a world with no walls, stares or frowns
Beauty in the dark, as in the Light
Glowing, refusing to be bound by limitations
Allowing the crack add spice to smoothness
I could go on and on, but no need to…
When you have seeing eyes and believing hearts…
There will always be Beauty!
Golden cracks: the Japanese art of kintsugi values breakage and imperfections.Gerda
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968
