Beauty Poem by Deep Mukherjee


Rating: 4.5

From Beauty to Bewilderment
Perplexed motion of self-indulgence;
I look at this dead flower
Once full of life
Charm! fragrance! !
Now I ask if
A thing of Beauty is a joy forever?
Beauty diminishes in the wrath of time;
Fragrance fades in the mist of destiny-
Beauty - an art of deception?
A futile personification? ?
Only a poetic sofistication! !
I look at the tomb of the dead martyr
Once dejected by the world!
Taken away by the devil
In his fight for truth! !
None could see the beauty inside the soul
What restricts our vision to the flesh and fire?
Beauty confined in our reptilic vision! !
I see beauty immortal
In the love of a mother
In compromise! Sacrifice! !
In the distress of mankind
In the fight of renaissance! !
I follow beauty like a sinking star
A thing of beauty is a joy forever! ! !

a brave attempt to describe beauty! i shall not say it is a definition of beauty. yes, old poets also said that beauty a physical beauty is temporary, time destroys everything but the beauty of the soul, the beauty of the intellect may last longer and yes the beauty of mother's love is immortal and a beauty is a joy forever is an old line used in should use new phrase....otherwise this poem a good piece of art, i like your brevity, copactness and power of thinking..kudoes to you..........
