KingMidget's Ramblings

Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

Studying Beauty


Inspired by a friend’s FB message today:

Where do you study beauty

Is it in the sight of a child’s smile

Or an old man laughing at the smallest of things

Is it in a single flower about to open in a riot of color

Or a meadow ablaze with multi-colored wildflowers

Is it in those moments when quiet surrounds you

Or the uproar of a celebration filled with happiness

Where do you study beauty

Is it in the touch of another

Or words of love whispered quietly

Is it in one of those looks that make you shudder

Or a hand draped gently on your hip

Is it in your child’s arms around your neck

Or her quiet slumber in dark of night

Where do you study beauty

In you

In me

In words

In art

In nature

In architecture

In the simple

In the complex

Where do you study beauty

      Thank you. Every once in awhile I hit the nail on the head. I think this is one of those rare moments.

    What a magnificent thing to ponder, sir, you are an artist that has painted poetry on our hearts. Excellent poem, kind regards from Baldy 🙂
