Beauty


Beauty's a word
With ambiguity
Conjuring images of vivid shades

But beauty to me
Is flourescent
Shining
From inside of the transparent,
simple box

Inverting people's glances
Simplicity is its choice
But think INSIDE the box
It full of complicated wires and cables
Revealing a high level of sophiscation

Look-
How it lights up everyone's faces
Bright with beauty.

    Awesome use of imagination to come up with superb imagery and metaphors, perhaps its amibuity is down to the users mind, some see beauty as a physical object but it can also be emphasised as having more shades, empathy generosity, which I think your getting at. Still fantastic job and great choice for poem of the day (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
