What is beauty to you? he once asked me. We stood among the flowers, on a hill where sunrises never set. The day remained gloriously endowed by all that charmed.
I stared ahead at the wonder of it all. Would a question like that require a tender heart, or would it be in passing that I should present my thoughts?
How do I begin to capture what I want to say in words?
Not all of the time does one know how to express tender words,
Not where beauty is concerned.
So I say to him,
When you see the world with tenderness,
No worth in words will take prominence,
Nor will you see flawed perfection,
As you believe you will see a vision,
Love is like the rainbow, a feast of sublimation after a storm.
