The cycle of beauty

This is in response to (and for) my favorite short story-writer, Hargun who gave me a challenge which required defining beauty in ten sentences comprising six words each. The twist was that each sentence must have the word ‘beauty’. It also required ending it with a favorite quote on “beauty“. For a person with experience of writing poetry as less as one week, it was a herculean task. So this is my attempt after burying my head under the pillow for a long time. 🙂

The beauty in her words arrive

From the beauty of her heart

Thus spilling purest beauty on paper

When appreciation she gets, beauty travels

Galloping like Black Beauty to her

Lips forming the symbol of beauty 🙂

This journey of beauty, from heart

To lips, the author of beauty

Makes the day filled with beauty

Beauty, Which is a joy forever.

And my favorite quote on beauty will always be “A thing of beauty, is a joy forever” by John Keats.

Hope it did some justice to the expectations of Hargun.

    I love that quote. Beauty is anything and everything — it’s all about how we view it.
