Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder - Poem by Meghan

a dead flower
a frown
hazy clouds and smoke
all things so beautiful to me
strangely perfect in their ways
I don't see beauty or romance in a red rose
I don't see true happiness in a smile
some like to mold beauty
and form it to their own
but beauty is in the eye of the beholder
and cannot be drawn in stone

    Very true, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty can not be defined and confined. The most ugliest thing can be the most beautiful for someone. a nice piece of write, Meghan.

    Best Wishes

    very true, spoken like an observant artistic's true that sometimes there's beauty in less conventional might be harder to see for some..but much more treasured when found (Report) Reply

    seldom do i see true happiness in a smile. seeing things just for what they are is recognizing truth and perhaps beauty.iv'e never seen beauty in a red rose either. like the line strangely perfect in their ways. good write! peace, darby (Report) Reply
