Beauty



source

The beggar mother croons

A moon-song to her child

Its happy lips become that crescent

The sparrow finds a shade

Under a fig leaf

While Mother Nature lovingly sings

Her rain-song

The eternal Romeo and Juliet

Whisper love-song

Drenched in moonbeams

Martyrs caught in the web of hatred

Could only breathe love

Love is Beauty, Beauty Love

We need to breathe it

To survive

  1. Your poem shows us the many kinds of beauty one can find in this world! Yes, we do need to breathe it in. It is there for us if only we see.

  2. I agree completely. I wrote something similar for the weekend on the need for love - it sustains us, but our culture right now is def not one that supports it. Love the nature touches.

  9. Love overcomes. But not many realize this until they run foul of love's puzzling outcomes.

  10. There is nothing sadder than beggar mothers with their children in the street....I will never see beauty in that...just feel a great sense of disgust and shame because it is only through greed and indifference it exists.

    1. I agree 100% but love of a mother and that of the child is something beyond poverty and it's true such love does exist in such hapless condition and often lacks in homes of the affluent...moreover beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

  20. The love of a mother for a child is beautiful and in this poignant and layered rending, one is reminded that beauty and love can be found in even the most dire of human conditions. Lovely.
