* A BEAUTY'S DUTY


A beauty with a duty
this beauty is not lost in its duty
the flower
with a charm and beauty of a young lady
has a responsibility to nature
the fruit and seed are within
yet the charm and love it shows
attracts LIFE to it

the bee
the wind
the sun
all come to it
it does not strive
to fulfil its duty to nature
the charm and love it shows
attracts LIFE to it

as an awakened soul would do

    Flowers give pleasure just by being. Those who possess beauty
    of the spirit also shine without fan fare. Very profound.
    Ten, of course.

    Warm regards,

    Very well penned - a theme that often duty boundness is not the final duty of truth and beauty. Both the theme and writing are very appealing. (Report) Reply

    Inner beauty of an awakened soul attracts all the goodness and life which mingle with it to produce fruits of the radiant soul being love, trust, charity, helpfulness, truth, tolerance etc. Profound thoughts well potrayed through the blooming of everyday flowers. Lovely Line of Thoughts.

    A poem awakening the deadened souls to make use
    of what Nature has gifted them. It is indeed our dutiful
    response that makes us more refine and we face the
    world with pride. Fulfilling the needs of others and living
    for them indeed brings happiness to life.........10
