What Beauty is…

21 Nov

For Sunday Scribblings:

Beauty is as simple as the sunrise turning the lake mists purple.

Beauty is as complex as the compassion of the old mama cat when she curls up next to the orphaned pup, her steady purr silencing his cries.

Beauty is an unexpected gift: his clear-eyed gaze breaking through that baffled baby stare, like headlamps cutting through fog — the man he used to be, returning after months away.

Beauty feels like homecoming, imparts that same inner glow.

Hold tight to those moments. Beauty never lingers long.

    I love that beauty feels like homecoming–so true, and I never thought of it that way before.

    I am sure we have all been spoiled by commercialized beauty. Your piece illustrates so well what true beauty is. Great piece.
