Total Beauty

Like the salt of life, giving flavor and seasoning to souls bland and blind
You are not even aware, but you are like an unhidden city on top of a hill
I see the light of your presence, flashing here and also there, far in the distance

I see you as a star, shining and racing into the blackened night, giving light to many
You have brightened up the pathway in the darkened sky so that others might clearly see
In the stormy skies of the night, you have created calm and spoken peace into fearful hearts

When daylight darkens and turns gray at noon day, you speak hope into terrorized souls
Then the sun light breaks through the stormy clouds by day, and the moon lights up the night

When voices loud are crying all around, some giving and others searching for direction and guidance,
It is your calming and gentle voice that I hear, pointing the way and leading others out of the shadows

For now we pause; all is still; all is at peace; nothing missing and nothing broken; And we with you, calmly take giant leaps across the deep
And now, because of you, we experience total beauty in peaceful harmony, and enjoy the sounds of sweet melody

beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and in that case total beauty would be nearly impossible to agree with, but this is a wonderful endeavour 🙂

Beauty Careful as I got, paying heed to the sculpture With such finesse, and an eye of a vulture Every peculiarity went on to depict a story Incarnating legends, of the war that was gory Over the period beauty stood

Beauty In Decay

Beauty In Decay long poem

Light a sharpie so bright shines on beauty seen through decay. Both beauty and decay form a duality of darkness and luminosity. Beauty is a love that can provide for its reality against dismay. Just as tradition is a security

The Beauty Of Winter

The Beauty Of Winter long poem

The cold air seeped down with no heart, What was once a sea of beauty and life, Now had been turned to a grave of white and death, The city had almost all but stopped living too. Morning turned to

Beauty Of Pain

Beauty Of Pain short poem

Behind your face was cleaver releasing past poem. The sensual milk flows from the palm into your lake. Grieving for the torn wings of pink light. Cruising on thighs with eyes closed death utters a shriek. The eternal flame closes
