What is this beauty we speak of?

There’s more to a person than the softness of their skin or the coloring of their eyes. There’s also what’s within that orb of beauty; the soul that lies beneath it. So too often people will see the attractiveness ofย a person and search no further than that. A human being is more than a pretty face; we have emotions and express them in ways that are powerful and compelling. I’m updating today with a haiku that I wrote some years ago. It speaks of stars but I think it could be considered a metaphor for how outer beauty fades over time and how we should depend on the beauty from within ourselves to feel love and acceptance not just from others but for ourselves. I apologize for not putting up Chapter 3 yet, but I promise I will get to it soon. So I’ve given my brief poem the title “Beauty is not immortal.”

  1. Woooooooooooow! This is very good. Thank you so much for sharing this. I think at times we do equate beauty with physical attractiveness instead of the inner. I’m so glad I came to your blog ๐Ÿ™‚ My new book “The Truth about Ugly Women” exposes the same issues! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  3. It is amazing how the inner condition of a person affects their outer beauty. A compelling thought. Thank you for sharing! Great work!
