Ode to beauty


I ponder this as the sun rises, what is beauty? To each it is something different and yet we each see beauty in the same things.
A smiling child full of laughter, the color of a summer sunset or the light of love in someones eyes.
We are told what beauty should be by the advertisers who wish us to buy the product, but is that beauty? What of the blind, to one who has no sight, what is beauty? The sounds, the smells and the textures of the world around them, in this they find beauty in the pleasure that it brings to the other senses.
This day, beauty will be in the sound of a voice, one not heard before but imagined. It is possible to hear suttle changes in a voice and know the mood of the speaker. The tone and inflection in the spoken word can reflect the speakers emotions if one but listens.
It is not nessecary for any to understand where this is coming from or going but simply to ponder in your own mind beauty and what it is to you.
It has been a long time since I have been inspired to write in this way and I hope that this inspiration has a life that is long for it feels good to have this part of me reborn. I thought the passion gone with the feelings so dampened in this year of trial. I hold hope up to the light again and know time will show the way and the spirits have heard the prayers.
For me there is beauty in the written word if written well. So hard to imagine those with so little imagination, who read and can not see that the words have painted a picture before the mind.
Today I hold hope that the time does not pass to quickly and the voice is as sweet as imagination has envisioned. There is beauty in the sound of a voice if it is the right voice, the one that quickens your heart and sooths the savage breast.
For to long this has not happened, it is with caution that I go forward but also with hope. Carpa Diem, cease the day.
Ya'all have a good one
