Despite desperate attempts to quantify and measure a woman's beauty, it is still mysterious since time. Each culture (men) relate to beauty in depending on values and perceptions.



                  Is her beauty in her looks?

Or measured by the way she cooks?
Does matter if she’s big
Or wears a pretty sassy wig?
Some may say it’s on the skin
Even if she’s not so thin
She may be pretty on the face
And very thick around the waist
But if her walk is full of grace
Men will fall to their disgrace
And uphold her like a prize
Which to me is no surprise
Is her beauty in her eyes
Or the way she bakes her pies?
Could it be her husky voice
Or when she cooks your meal of choice?
Some may say it’s in her wits
And adore the way she knits
Others think it’s in her heart
 And compare her to fine art
A woman’s beauty‘s still mysterious
Depends on what one thinks is serious
Regardless of her shape or size
Her beauty glows beyond the skies

Thats so true! I been chased by women I thought were ugly all my life and turns out I was more ugly than them. Fortunately, I was blind but now I see. I don't need any bifocals no more to see the real beauty of the black woman. You definitely restore the entire beauty of our sisters with your words.

Very nice tribute to the beauty of "woman," Rozzy. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and best wishes,

I think it is..."to everyone his/her own taste"!!!

You always see the most ridiculous matches in husbands and wives, but they do see the beauties within each other. I think the phrase "Love Is Blind" is true. When one is in love with the other, no matter what the other does, beauty is in the eyes of the beholders.

Sandie Angel :o)
