# A SLEEPING BEAUTY


the sky's beauty
is seen when the world is sleeping
the mind's beauty
is seen when the man is sleeping
the man's beauty
is seen when his fear is sleeping
the life's beauty
is seen when evil is sleeping
the mother's beauty
is seen when your age is sleeping
the wife's beauty
is seen when your right over her is sleeping

THE WORLD'S BEAUTY
IS SEEN WHEN NATIONALISM IS SLEEPING

    A good take on the sleeping beauties
    Only wonder is how to get into such sleep.

    Anyway you have put the torch on...
    Now we can take the right corn.

    The opening lines excel the rest. We can compare something to something when something is waking instead of sleeping. I think it would make a positive impact also. When we say that something is beautiful when something is sleeping, it means that when it awakens, it can explode the life. When we say that something is beautiful when something is waking, this element of explosion will not be there. It becomes just a kind of blossom. You are only shifting the scale but it gives a different mental proportion. Just think of that proposition. (Report) Reply
