Beauty makes its journey through the eye
Colors and shapes and light arrange themselves
in a way that lights a fire in our mind
but have you stopped and noticed
the color of a persons cheeks
as words flow out of their mouth like a river
on a subject that moves their very core?
Have you ever noticed the curve of someones mouth
as their mind runs and runs
for that one thing that keeps them up at night?
Have you ever noticed the light in someone’s eyes
and realized that they have found their passion,
they have a love that reaches deeper than the ocean?
That is truly beautiful.
