Sometimes we miss so much beauty if we would only look .

So much emphasis is put
On the outward beauty
of everything we see
people, places and everythng
from A to Z
People forget that beauty is in the
eye of the beholder
Most don't  learn this fact
till they are older
I can look at a raindrop and see
a rainbow hiding within
Gaze through a window and feel
the sweet sun shine in
Eyes that twinkle like diamonds
look into mine
I find so much joy and beauty in all,,,everytime
Warm summer evenings bring flowers scents
walfing through the park
Gentle ripples in the of larks
Seasons changing bring their own beauty
for us all to enjoy
It is within that makes it so precious
You have to look to find it
The true beauty is there
Just open your eyes and heart and look
Really look with loving care

I agree, Kathleen. Beauty is a personal thing, each person - or culture - has its own criterion of Beauty. I see the beauty of fairy tales, but I don't tell those who prefer the beauty of the beautiful game, football! ha ha!

A quote from my poem, "My Lady"

Looking at my lady
and though
not classically beautiful
and though
not one that turn all men’s heads,
the beauty of this woman
the beauty of this woman I love
near taking my breath away,
the beauty of this woman,
this woman
that holds my heart
within her hands...

You, Hazel Eyes, are truly a beautiful woman.

though far from a religious type

the beauty of this woman,

this woman

that holds my heart within her hands

The beauty changes with each season, we need to be reminded to keep our eyes opened.

This is fine counsel, Kathi. Thank you for sharing it. Love and best wishes to you,

That's what I saw in my wife, her inner beauty, even though she sparkled like a jewel.
