Beauty Undefined


This poem found me this morning from my writing folder that I wanted to share. It was in response to a post Leena Colibri had written about Beauty. It inspired me to feel into my own relationship to it and how it has been more of an externalized taking in of what is in front of me. As we begin to let in that what we “see” on the outside is a reflection of what we feel on the inside, a new relationship to ourselves begins to emerge. We are the beauty we perceive. I included a picture of Sleeping Beauty as it felt to signify our awakening to this reality.

You are held in the eyes of one

As a precious reminder of what it means to be alive

You are the colors of the dancing rays of light

Swimming in the ocean of our holographic kaleidoscope

The sounds of musical vibrations

Swirling through the vestiges of our soul’s remembrance

The verses of interwoven letters and spaces

Capturing the depths of our soaring triumphs and blood-stained tragedies

Your outward expression reverberates through my body

And into the insatiable desire of my heart to feel you

Your brilliance and profundity

Your momentary lapse of reason and thought

Send me to another time where there is no time but that ever-enchanted moment

A place where space is filled with a feeling that there is always something beyond

Beyond the machinations, the distractions, the fabrications

Beyond the tight, the drained, the void

You are a soft caress on my weathered skin

A gentle whisper when all felt lost

A infinite stare into the twinkling starscape of your compassion

You are a reflection of all I wanted to Be

Until I realized you were me and I was you all along

In all its effervescent tendrils of perfect imperfection

The moment you let go of all you were conditioned to Be

You are what Is…. Beauty Undefined
