A Sevenling for Beauty

Day 9: Month of Poetry

This one is inspired by the unbelievably great beach holiday we are having and the soaking in beauty that my soul is getting.

A Sevenling for Beauty

Three things in nature catching at the heart:
the blue-green changing sea; the high gloss on the neck of a horse;
the inscrutability of stars in their constellations.

Three things, closer:
the widened eyes of a child seeing a starfish;
the tenderness in a man's lopsided smile;
a glimpse of your own face in a rockpool, wearing hard years with unexpected lightness.

And all around, beauty: above, below, within;
