A Poem by Shy Joe

what exactly is that
is it a sight to please the senses
or butterflies dancing in your gut
could it be a red
hued rose moistened by a springs rain
or a dirty old homeless man, offering you a hand

touched by sensory stimulation of perceptional life
a dispensary of aberration are what bother me tonight

maybe it's a mix of both

mad scientist mixture of loves first kiss,
and Michelangelo's paintings, his greatest hits

whether it be a blissful image of pupil dilating excitement
or a pregnancy test result revealing enlightenment 
beauty doesn't need all of this incitement

beauty is not one of its self
beauty is what we find in ourself

I smiled with this. I couldn't agree with you more. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. What we see is a reflection of who we are. awesome work :)
