life is beautiful

 

 

i

in the spread of the ugliness of life

lies the beauty essence of existence

life may pose a cursed star of attraction but her spells of beauty surpass her sights of repels

life is a beauty, beautiful to behold…

 

ii

 

life is the beauty in the smooth smiles of maidens the soothing relief that melts the boils of sadness

it is the beauty in the souls of pure pupils and in the steady obeisance of lovely eyebrows

the beauty in the softness of the whispers of love…

 

iii

life is the beauty of endless streams of sweet moments the feelings of paradise of love armed in love…

it is the beauty of innocence in the repose of tender lads the softness in the hairy locks of lasses

the beauty of rest on the backs of sweet mothers…

 

iv

life is the beauty in the hands of coldness from ceaseless comfort of rainy nights

it is the beauty in the warmth of the sun in the strolls of the moon and in the silent twinkles of stars

the beauty in the colour blend of the rainbow…

 

v

life is the beauty in the art of art

the beguiling craft on tiny wings of butterflies

it is the beauty in the sparkles of greenness splashed on the canvass of sunned floras

the beauty of brightness in the coats of fireflies…

 

vi

life is the beauty of a day truth to thousand years of lies the dawn of dawn on a decade dwell of darkness

it is the beauty in the tears of true forgiveness the gift of comfort in the embrace of fine friendship

the beauty of peaceful breaths in the drafts of trusted trust…

 

vii

life is the beauty in the races of tides on the tracks of rippling torrents

it is the beauty of watery kisses

on the lips of thirsty sands from the rays of the sun

the beauty of beauty beneath the spread of oceans…

 

viii

life is the beauty of words in nourished nibs in the paintings of wordy worthy portraits

it is the beauty in the well weaves of flaming fingers in the clothes of healings for the ills of  nakedness

life is a beauty, beautiful to behold…
