Beauty

Wondrous beauty
Glorious perfection
“The soul of man
Is the sun by which his body
Is illumined!”*

Beauty is not skin deep
After all
Beauty is the reflection of the soul
In our eyes!

When I look at a beautiful collage
A beautiful face
Or a beautiful design
What I see is the soul of the artist
The sunshine of her thoughts

When I admire a work of art
A delicious meal
A fancy design
What I enjoy is the beauty
That is manifested
In the work of art

Beauty uplifts
Beauty inspires
Beauty brings joy and delight

Beauty the reflection of the soul
In the work of art
