Inside Beauty

Inside Beauty

By Robert L. Martin.

Surrounded on every side
By murmuring brooks
Snuggled in a paradise
With clans of birds
Singing exotic songs
The earth is full of
Beautiful creatures
Humanity is a potpourri
Of savory spices
Politicians are statesmen
And leaders are sages

Sitting on a cloud
My thoughts are clear
My spirit’s soaring
The universe is my home
The stars are mine to keep
Angels are my muses
The sun is a lovely flame
The moon is a huge rounded
Elegant crystalline
Heaven is my altar
Earth is a solid rainbow
Whirling through space
And every sound is musical

I was thrown inside beauty
And left there in her bosom
“Oh sweet beauty,
Leave me here to live
And die in your arms.”
