Beauty Does As Beauty Will

…for my wife; a beauty of a thousand lifetimes


Her sparkling eyes turned towards the sky

Clouds and wind; she takes all of it in

Her flowing hair swept everywhere

But when nature shares, she has no cares

Her graceful smile stretches for miles

Twinkling eyes with no disguise

And playful laughing at the choreographing

Another close of another day; so perfect on display

She’s centered as the sun; every vision filled with fun

Perched up high on a hill; beauty does as beauty will

When the horizon light sinks into the night

She watches the shadows play, then slip away

Pretty colors change, then rearrange

Mixing, blending, and never ending

As from the darkened lush of an artists’ brush

Painting robust bouquets of dims and grey

While leaden sighs still dim the skies

Though dazzling days lead to endless praise

The sun must be jealous as the night develops

Subtle changes on mountain ranges

Salty tides, becoming amplified

A gossamer mist, like a long goodnight kiss

While an invisible hand spreads moisture inland

The plump full moon in delightful bloom

The endless stars plus Venus and Mars

A musical chorus spilling from woodland forests

Nearly silent whispers from the flowing rivers

Yes, as darkness falls, this beauty sees it all

This peaceful silence is what gives her balance

Learned an adoration for natural relaxation

Those moments spent seem heaven sent

With twilight gone, it won’t be long

She’ll soon head back before the total black

Mental pictures, her visual scriptures

Her vision stream; the sweetest cream

Delectable sights from another night

Softly breathing as she starts her dreaming

Until the budding flowers of her waking hour

Satisfied and had her fill, beauty does as beauty will

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
