Where Does Beauty Reside?
Age Group: Adult
Where does beauty reside?
Is beauty solely to be found within?
Do you have to find beauty within to find beauty in your surroundings?
Can you find the beauty in a blistering summer day in the heart of a city?
~heatwaves rising from an otherwise dirty sidewalk
~the sun's reflection from a skyscraper window
~squirrels racing across telephone lines
Or is this beauty overlooked for a more natural form?
~frothy waves crashing on a sandy shore
~towering trees blowing in the wind
~a drop of dew on a spring flower
Do you find beauty in all life forms?
~an attractive man or woman
~a delicate rose bud
~the neighbor's old and mangy dog
~a buzzing honeybee
~blue green grass that's freshy mown
Is there beauty to be found in the arts?
~Monet, VanGogh, Picasso
~A Tennessee Williams play
~A Broadway musical
~the latest rock band in town
~Bronte, Poe, Shakespeare or even Silverstein
Where does the beauty life in your fellow man?
~an intelligent mind
~a well-toned physique
~full lips, blue eyes- a straight nose or strong brow
~a gentle or kind soul
~kind words that are well spoken
Beauty is everywhere and is in all things. You need only to exist to find it. Open your heart and expand your mind- it will come to you. You need not look far. There is no reason to search for beauty. It's not hiding, it's not out of your reach~ it just 'is'.
