For Longo

she asked
“What is Beauty?”

there is the beauty of romantic love which changes the eyes of the beholder so that a rose colored glow permeates the being in question – her face opened in my hands, a warm and pleasing, ever opening flower of the Universe

there is the beauty of a mother’s face when you at the bottom of a fever that tells you there will always be hope, as long as she lives – the beauty of a small child in your hands who’s nervous system is so poorly connected that they completely depend on you for survival – the beauty of a daughter as she rushes about getting ready for her first date – the beauty of your mate, a proven and trusted master of your heart

there is the beauty of the symmetry of the Universe – the way the desert prepares for the unstoppable sun – the way silence permeates a properly maintained Japanese garden – the opulent beauty of a lush forest so filled with sound and motion – the way the laws of nature just feel right

and there is the beauty of a beautiful woman who dances the flames and paints the face of the night with the fire of her passion which is the unification of the first three beauties
