Beauty.

G'Day,
The Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is "Beauty".
What is that?
It is everywhere.

Beauty is....
In watching, the curve of a soft fine cheek, as your loved one sleeps,
and you watch their steady peaceful breathing.
Your baby's fingers reaching out to discover the marvelous word he has become a part of,
To learn and explore and wonder at.
The newness of their beginning.

Beauty is....
The eye of the beholder, we all see something different,
The face or body or aroma or characteristic that appeals to one may not appeal to another.
Mother nature's assurance that we are all different and those differences are meant to be.

Beauty is....
Beauty of form and function.
The curve of that pot you just made,
The taste of that food,
The smell and sight of that....
Which appeals to you personally.

Beauty is....
All the senses that were given to us to use.
Sight, sound, taste, hearing, smell.
The things that each of our senses bring us within their sub groups.
Color. Color. More color.In all its shades.

Beauty is....
I know I am always on this subject but.....
The world around us.
The flora and fauna,
The form of the land.
Natural and man made.

Beauty is....
Everywhere and in everything.
Simplicity.
Subjective.
Sensual.
Style.
Sizzzzzzle.

Beauty is...
your journey through life.
Don't miss a minute of it.

Bye
Love Linda.

Dear Linda ~~ Did you write that lovely poem about Beauty? It is
really nice. And reminds us Beaut is all around us and we take it for granted. Glad you enjoyed the jokes
my friend. Kate's birthday was on the 20th and she was 22. Still close to yours. I do hope you enjoyed it and your Mum did enjoy hers.
Take great care my friend.
Love, Merle.
