Beneath - Poem by Kelly Kurt
Beneath the surface
All is beneath the surface
The stark desert of the ocean’s surface
Hides its range of fauna and flora
The alabaster fields of a northern winter
‘Tho beautiful in their own right
Conceal promising springtime blooms
What lies beneath the surface of man?
Few open up, few expose, few reveal what lies beneath
What is seen, what is known is what is allowed
The innocence of children is transparent
No shame or gratuitous pride
No need to obscure or hold back
Open, honest, sincere
Why then the wall we build as we age?
The ocean cannot reveal its hidden bounty from above
The springtime flowers can’t flaunt their beauty
From beneath their shimmering blanket
Why purposely hide your bounty and beauty?
Let all see
Let shine what lies beneath
