THE REFUGE OF BEAUTY

When we are troubled

we seek refuge in beauty

sanctuary in our sense of wonder

      she serves us well

      asks nothing from us

      except awareness

as against our demands

she plays her gracious card.

Ray - I can appreciate the idea of nature's beauty as a form of panacea. She gives without expectation and we, in our ingratitude or greed, usually manage to f*** up the environment in return.
Good piece this. I like it a great deal.
