poetry and beauty

Where the wind blows
Isn’t far from where the sun shines
It’s near the ocean’s end
They are all close to where stars are born
I look up in the sky
Watching the dance of the heavens
All of it swirled in blue black purples and gold
I get all esoteric about the beauty of nature
Only there do I see the perfection
Only then I understand
I am apart of all the good things worth being seen
Star sun moon ocean
The wind
Where the wind begins
It’s all part of me

Beauty without kindness and bravery is just a pretty empty shell, my dear. And you can find plenty of those on the beach. People use them to decorate their rooms. So I hope you aspire to be so much more than just beautiful. I hope you aspire to be so much more than a pretty little thing that decorates the room you walk into.
