Natural Beauty

Natural Beauty

A Poem by Frances L. Phillips

Sparkle and shimmer as the light plays

Through the blue of your eyes like they're an ocean

See the tears fall like a stream

Over the cliff of your cheeckbones

An anguished blush Spreads across your cheeks

Like the petals of a rose in the full bloom of summer

Let me imerse myself in your oceans

Bring the sparkles of love that need no light

Let me follow your stream

Till I find the well of joy at its end

Let me care for your Rose Petals

Nurture in love and water with praise

Let me be the sole observer of your natural beauty

Let me breath the air so soft and sweet

That emitts from your soul as if blown by a breeze

As clean and pure as after new fallen rain

Let me loose myself in it

Like a tropical rain forest at it's finest

Let me wipe away the pain

Like a gentle hand

Removes harmfull moss from a tree

Let me watch you grow and heal

Becoming more beautiful

Than the moss could ever have dreamed

Shimmering in the crystal light

That can only be achieved 

When sunlight shoots 

Through drops of rain

And blooming

With the exuisit blosoms

That are only more beautiful

For blooming through adversity

Drawing to you the exotic 

Colorfully painted 

Distinguished birds

All clamoring

For one small drop of attention

From the exotic and rare beauty

That only a plain mockingbird

Noticed was there all along.
