Beauty

Beauty thrives in Clichéd imaginings

In brilliant sunsets, clear oceans

Bright futures and romantic pasts

In such common things as truth and hope

And love that lasts

Beauty rests in campfire’s orange glow

In a problem solved

In an unclimbed tree and in an offered hand

In a cheek gladly turned

And in a taken stand

Beauty lives in the mundane

A parent’s watchful eye

A child’s mischievous grin

A simple compliment, a complicated equation

The recognition of a friend

Beauty is what saves us from plummeting over the unguarded edge

It is the longing to rush in where only foolish tread

Beauty is the heartbeat and breathe of a sleeping dream

It is the texture and depth of a story well told

Beauty is in the believing
