Love Sees Beauty

Love Sees Beauty

Love sees Beauty in ‘imperfections’,

in the ‘ordinary and common’ sights,

in the chaos that births creation

where awe and wonder delights.

Love sees Beauty present in every form

though judged by many a human-

feet, ears, nose judged ‘too big’, ‘too small’,

‘too little’ fat or ‘too much’,

‘too short’ in stature, ‘too tall’,

‘bad hair day’, no hair at all,

warts, pimples, scars and wrinkles-

Love sees Beauty through it all.

Love sees treasures of Beauty

in rocks, in weeds, in grasses that sway,

in taken-for-granted inventions,

in Nature’s abstract and fractal formations,

in sunset skies reflected on water,

in weather ‘events’ or calm of a day.

Love sees Beauty in the artist’s mess

transforming chaos into creations-

spills, sound-jumbles, rips, smudges, smears,

trash-treasures, excavations, explosions

moving dirt to build, to form

something new like the formation of stars.

Love sees Beauty through it all.

We see through the ‘eyes’ of God

when we see through Love for all.

Sunlight Through Raindrops:


Beauty is subjective thought

and feelings stirred within

with Powers to delight

our minds and hearts

then carry us to Bliss.

Beauty is God’s Kiss.

Even when Beauty seems strange,

Strange Beauty is Life’s Kiss.

Our Senses come alive-

touching, tasting, hearing, smelling, seeing,

Life’s Wonders then unfold

in Beauty we behold.

Though some may judge as ‘Ugly’

the Beauty that we see and feel,

we’re held in Beauty’s warm embrace

and there we choose to be.
