Literary Yard

Search for meaning

By: Sylvia Frances Chan


About beauty often heard
about spiritual beauty…?
that’s absurd

we can see beauty everywhere
discover a person’s smile
watch the flight of the condor
rose’s perfume and its petals
the jasmine’s scent

the rainbow with one color more
the way they talk the freshman and the sophomore
there is always beauty in their movement
the crawling of the turtle’s quickness
the butterfly upon the lawn between the hedges

two rivers with an artistic bent
we can spend many hours
just sitting watching all beauty in nature
be not blind for every format change
it’s pure simple things we nurture
do not sleep, stay awake in rapture

beauty is thus in all things visually
the greatest beauty of these all
we call
spiritual beauty
in our deepest inside-we….
