Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Beauty ~ In Distortion


what is beauty? truth colors boundless?
or what ever does the eye meet that reflects
peace harmony satisfaction happiness?

what is beauty? order in chaos?
gain more after loss or victory over
someone gross. ugly seeming moss?

what is beauty? peace after war?
or hidden hatred in a smile
suppressed for a while?

what is beauty? forgiveness and yet'
thoughts hovering far behind
killing good all the time'
