The best thing
When back’s to beauty –
A switchback.

Look out upon the stars, my love,
And shame them with thine eyes,
On which, than on the lights above,
There hang more destinies.
Night’s beauty is the harmony
Of blending shades and light;
Then, lady, up, – look out, and be
A sister to the night!

Sleep not! thine image wakes for aye
Within my watching breast:
Sleep not! from her soft sleep should fly
Who robs all hearts of rest.
Nay, lady, from thy slumbers break,
And make this darkness gay
With looks, whose brightness well might make
Of darker nights a day.

Aesthetics is the reason why
Some protest line and pole.
They cannot see that beauty lies
Past Cindy Crawford’s mole.

The fragile flowers, in their beauty,
Are never seen as vain.
In breezes soft, they stand, their duty:
That we, might pleasure, gain. 

The sweet young thing who is a cutie,
And stands long at a pane,
Stays pure. But shift might make her snooty:
The mirror makes one vain.

Eight Legs Beat Two

That guard that’s
Guarding the garden
Keeps me out!

——————–

 

Tea Leaves Leafing

One little
Teapot short and stout.
Tea? I doubt.

——————–

 

Beauty

Beauty bright;
Beauty distinct and
Even blurred.

If It’s Not Too Much Trouble

I want one –
Perfect one, far left,
Bottom row.

——————–

 

Barren Branch

Midst of life,
Among all the green,
A deadness.

——————–

 

Beauty That Flies

Men may fly,
And color their planes,
Ne’er matching.

In midst of ugliness and hate,
A place that’s bleak and bare,
It may be hard to stand alone
And be the beauty there. 

When barren frame surrounds the bud,
And it’s the lonely breed,
Its graceful singularity’s
An even greater need.

Guessing – Off To A Rocky Start

A giraffe!
After closer look,
Maybe not.

Elusive Wealth

A pipe wrench
Holds, for what most is
A pipe dream.

Beauty Below And Above

The landscape
Dominated by
The skyscape.

I’ll Keep My Distance

I shudder
To think of the heights
And tough climb.

— 

E’en the moon,
A silver sliver,
Seems so small.

— 

But beauty
Is stark, outstanding.
I’m in awe.

Defrosty The Snowman

De-icing,
Or the plane would be
On the rocks.

——————– 

 

Beaming Beauty

E’en a rose
Is brightened by an
Inner light.

High Way Engineer

What we see
Is God’s road system
For a leaf.
