I see elegance in a face,
a soul emitting such grace
to imbue a countenance of worthy moments,
considerations of form and aspect,
just sating what’s there in emotion,
what radiates through a soul
and becomes evident.
I see the light, not from a candle,
but from within: a serene vibrancy
that cannot be ignored,
and know in quiet contemplation
a kindness does stall our thoughts,
and in awe of promise,
we consider more deeply the whole.
We are but vessels,
of flesh and bone and blood,
but what glows is the life within us,
those parts least shown,
for there they are intrinsically owned,
if we look deep enough,
where the soul has honed a place.
Beauty may lie within, or without,
but true beauty comes from the heart,
where love finds place to reside and grow,
and no such heart will ever foreclose
its truth, its equity of purpose,
its path of intended bliss,
where everything is possible.
I see beauty and falter,
my heart skips a beat and I must abide,
look deeply into its vast potential,
just to see it rise and develop,
for potential is a beguiling light,
and love innate a sight of yearning,
as we observe beauty’s quiet allure.
The female form is a beauteous thing,
the gentle lines and smooth transitions
a seamless perfection of everything,
and when love and kindness are seated firmly
within a soul open and giving,
there is no greater beauty, no greater gift of ardor,
that words cease to espouse its paragon.
