Beauty

Why would flowers try so hard,
to attract the bees?
Why would raindrops transform themselves into a rainbow
when they encounter the sun?

Because nature is beauty
Outer beauty is inner beauty made visible
Inner beauty is the soul

The eyes are the mirror of the soul
And reflect all the hidden secrets

Beauty is simple and truthful
And cannot be tricked

Beauty exists not in sameness,
but in difference
It is the imperfect that astonishes,
that attracts
It is the real,
the soul that smiles and shines

The brightest light comes from within
