beauty (Remove filter)

Hardly original, but still my perspective

Beauty is openness,

beauty is truth,

beauty is not the shallow absence of imperfections

absent mindedly bestowed by youth.


In notions objects and places,

it's far easier to be objective about the subject

of this most subjective of emotions

than it is when we consider faces.


For beauty in people goes deeper,

lasts longer,

is marked over years

Second Sonnet

When you behold the shimmering stars at night,

You ask if all that beauty’s in your eyes,

You close them, pensive; here within my sight,

Your form so exquisite provokes my sighs;

That hawthorn flowered path on which we walk,

Has scent that’s just as sweet before we meet,

Those songs without words in each precious thought,

Become enchanting music when you speak,
