Everyone sees beauty in so many different things - but it lifts our being above the normal, mundane life .

A Thing Of Beauty

Keats wrote long ago .
A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Oh - how true are those words .
Something truly beautiful lifts our soul
Beyond the everyday - the mundane - the
Earthly - into another realm - and makes us whole .
It breaks through the dark clouds - the tunnels -
The pits -and sees - the sun - the stars -
And the tender new shoots - on the trees .
It gives us hope - where despair seems to be the norm.
It puts a song in our mouth - a dance
In our step - and a smile on our lips -
Yes - a thing of beauty is a joy forever .
It calms our fears - and stills our pounding hearts
It quiets our thoughts - and gives us peace .
It brings serenity - where strife has stolen our joy .
It comes to us in so many differing forms .
A sunset - a flower - a melody of love -
A work of art - a dream - a smile.
the list goes on and on .
Yes - a thing of beauty is - a joy forever - and
Forever - means - forever.


Even in the grey drabness of winter - we can still see so much beauty around us if we look for it .

God bless you today .

BEAUTY is 95 percent success
balance 5
is how beautiful is ones
SMILE
total hundred percent
win, win, win situation ...

I only smile
thus
I get 5 percent
and
all push and pull me from behind
yet I do smile
as you are besides my side
holding my hand

beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder

smile is all that I can give
