is a gift. is light. is not only physical.
can be found anywhere if we open our eyes.
in more obvious things- a flower a sunset the ocean.
but also in the wrinkles on the face of one who has lived fully. and in the smile of one who has suffered much.
in pain that brings new growth. in a tumultuous storm. in the kindness of a stranger. in the humanity that connects us all.
it's definition has been skewed by society. it has become something to strive for when it is within each of us all along.
beauty is love. and truth. it is powerful enough to change the world if we let it.
a cold heart can be warmed by it. a hateful heart can be changed by seeing it in another soul.
beauty- true beauty, truly seen, can lead to understanding respect love and peace.
this is why it is a gift. this is why it must be shared captured celebrated.
