Beauty (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #12)   Leave a comment

What is beauty?
The crimson petals of a rose?
A brilliant sunset on a warm summer’s day?

What is beauty?
The blisters from a hard day’s work?
The crowd of people gathered at your funeral?

Is beauty even something we can truly know?
Something we can point at and say,
“That is beauty.”

Or is it kept in our mind, in our thoughts, alone?
Wrapped up in a subjective thought,
“That is beauty.”
