Where Beauty Grows

Where Beauty Grows

A Poem by Alfred Kukitz
"

A Song of Voice

"

Where Beauty Grows

I find the words betraying my lips
Adverbs that spin around corners
Their void flattening the sphere of speech
Nouns sounding like horsehair riding to its own destiny

If you heard a whisper you can be sure it came from nowhere
The kind of nowhere where enlightened dwellings hang lights of
celestial brilliance.
Offer up your prayer
Kneel in the holy vestibule of honor
Say as was meant to say
Hallowed, tuned, grow a voice where beauty grows.

The way you bring your words together reads really smartly and truly poetic. Many great lines you shared in your piece. I think I especially like the second part, it reads a tad clearer than the first one but I admire your talent of expressing yourself. Beauty is in everything but not visible for everyone, I'd like to say.

Thanks Jacob,

To quote a favorite poet of mine, "thank you for your kind words".

beauty comes from nowhere and everywhere all at once...we just have to see it----embrace it...listen to the voice.

nicely said, Al.
