Beauty is the pure pleasure one feels in the core of heart or soul for something which has the essence to be above ordinary. It is a delight of mind to see or feel some visual as well as mental satisfaction.
Thanks and it is an interesting question.
beauty is all there is,
except the most of us don't have the eyes to see.
we are blinder then a blind man.
we don't know what beauty is even if
it is staring at us in the face.

Your question has many answers! I don't think you're going to get a definitive reply which is kind of beautiful in its own way because it means that your search for beauty will never stop for there an infinite number of things that hold beauty.
For me beauty stirs the feelings, it's a quality that cannot be tamed with mere words or explained in one simple sentence. The fascinating thing is, my idea of beauty may be someone else's idea of ugliness.
For example, if I say to my friend all nature is beautiful and then we watch a cat catch and eat a splendid bird I may still feel this is beautiful! But my best friend may think this wild act a disgusting piece of obscene action!! As far from beauty as is possible.
I guess if there is genuine beauty in something or someone there is universal joy, without exception.
Perhaps being here and chatting with you. We are both addicted. (gently joke). Our brother Keats has said that a thing of beauty is a joy forever. This can be said of Desiderata, which never seems to grow old, or 'Do not stand at my grave and weep'. These are poetic examples, but a life lived in God is the supreme beauty and then we shall see beauty everywhere in the wonders of His creation. Here is a passage from Sri Chinmoy that has touched me for years and keeps on touching me:
"When an aspirant is totally surrended to God's Will, he will get abundant joy. He will feel all joy in his heart and he will live in constant joy. He will not be able to account for it, or give any meaning to it. Early in the morning when he first gets up, he will get a very sweet feeling or sensation. If he touches a wall, he will get joy. If he touches a mirror, he will also get joy. His own joy enters into everything he sees.
At times he may see that a solid wall is full of joy; a tree will be full of joy. If a taxi-cab goes by, he will feel intense joy in the driver, even in the car itself. His inner joy will enter into each person, each object, and it will pervade everything." - Sri Chinmoy.
Point here is that all things can exude beauty, when we are anchored in a state of tranquility and peace. Note: I have cut this poetic and itself beautiful passage short. I also wish to serve and be careful that I get the balance right in doing so. Much love.
Your response is a service and balanced. I especially enjoy "His inner joy will enter into each person, each object, and it will pervade everything." and "all things can exude beauty, when we are anchored in a state of tranquility and peace."
