Beauty And Truth

Rating: 4.9
Attracted as I am like John Keats
To “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever”
Sometimes I am uncomfortable
To beauties of certain flavour

There is one of the plastic kind
With all the right chiseled curves
Everywhere with the right finish
But without any kernel reserves

And there are ones that are so soft
They are like a lump of butter
A slight breeze of a light difference
Makes their hearts go in tremulous flutter

Tough beauties are like statutory gods
A statue with a lot of legal demands
A mistake on a given protocol
Can arouse their wrath and reprimands

More varieties are there
But the case in point is
Beauty’s even more beautiful
When it comes with truth and ease

When truth lies at the heart of beauty
It is even more sumptuous
Beauty and truth
How I wish they were synonymous!

...my kernel reserves always on my inner selfs shelf serve me well. I have been in statutory god mode-tough, though no beauty by far. Mistakes quite many in numbers, willing to speak truth with/without ease. Too much some say, I say please, my kernel reserves' say its so, and then I feel beautiful. Amen.10+++ 3x3 thank you, Bhaswat

Again, your poems are incredibly deep and you have to think for a while before you get the meaning. What talent as a poet you have! Am I right here in thinking you are saying what values are inside a person are much more important than physical beauty?

Though there is beauty in the moon, none can live there. There is beauty in the earth where all of us live and enjoy the moon and other God's creations on this beautiful earth and beyond.. This the truth behind the beauty, well said in the poem.

I just love this take on the Beauty. In a world where... Beauty is said to be the power there is much to know about it In its original terms. To conclude... let me add my views too... 'One who is intellectual always looks inside Rates oneself through ones wisdom paradise Evaluate the self and enjoy with pride Beauty within oneself is for all to realize.' You have variety in your write. Subject very sensitive. And you touch the core of it. In today's language.... I may say You ROCK here... dear poet.
