Just because it's beautiful

The beauty of things
settling the noise inside
re-ordering and re-shaping
that which has gone askew

The deep blue
the ivory of love
earthen and from the beyond
cradled by the soft grains of sand

Somewhere out there
there is comfort
there is an order 
that has meaning

And nature
and the world
offers freely
beauty and grace

miraculous growth
despite the harsh conditions
pushing upward 
the order of things

Just because it's beautiful 
that's why I select
the aesthetics of things
lessens my pain


  1. The meaning of your beautiful poem resonates deeply within me, dear friend. Thinking of you.

  2. Thank you Emalina. I am touched by your comment and can feel the resonance. Thinking of you too.
