Poetry – Beauty


Beauty in a face,

A sunset and a tree.

Beauty is a state

Decided by you and me.

A scene that moves to awe,

A sunset over sea,

A flower or a baby,

Water lapping lazily.

On some we agree.

On others are unsure.

For beauty is the degree

We create aesthetics for.

Nature is the basis of what I see of as awe and beauty. To watch wild creatures fills me with excitement. That never dims.

Trees, rocks, mountains, sunsets and rainbows. So many things are breath-taking.

Then there is the beauty of art, music, dance, drama and architecture. I adore the things we have created. It is the best of us.

People can also be beautiful.

When you see real beauty it fills you with wonder.

But when you come to analyse what is beautiful and what is not things become blurred. We have different views.

What makes something beautiful?

I'd like to hear from you...
