To Compare

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Each petal, each leaf,

each bloom I touch,

can in no way compare

with your beauty,

for you are resplendent

in ways not understood,

an image that stirs a heart

from sleep,

enlivening hope

of life's blissful embrace.


What you embody,

is a profound perfection,

in every fibre of being,

Gods blessing,

his miraculous hand,

having brushed your body,

your mind and soul,

into reality,

to be of reverence,

to possibility, what can be in life.


When a heart connects,

to such beauty,

there is a surrendering,

an acceptance,

that perfection transcends,

all hope, desire and dreams,

to find place within each breath,

each thought and movement,

to share life as a duality,

of souls, of purpose and of love.


Where can you be, my love?


Beauty is simply the recognition of perfection, and that recognition is different for each one of us: the eye of the beholder. What we see as beauty uplifts our hearts and our level of consciousness.

      Glad you found it FR; I have written so much poetry, sometimes I find a poem and read it as if someone wrote it- just can't remember writing. Thanks for your kind words as always. Take care.

      Beautiful! Your poem forced me to visualize things in that manner...not only a love interest but also a child's smile, a lightly watered flower, a clear sky. Thank you for sharing!
