Beauty is Born

Beauty is Born

We all have it.


Like a treasure, we guard it

Our talent, Our vision, Our love, Our beauty

It is our gift

Our gift to give

Our gift too often held in fear of the rejection of it

Too often clamped closed like the tight bud of a rose

Safe within the confines of its layers.


We feel the tug of Nature’s desire

Learned behavior behaves like instinct

Shutting down and closing in our wish

For us to loosen the cage in which we store our treasure

Keeping in check our intuitive Knowing

To set it free

To share it


Fear faces the tender heart

Shrouding it in the shadows of our darkest memories


Another moment arrives,

With the cresting Sun on the Eastern horizon

Unpleasant grip misses a beat

Altering the balance of Power

Unlocking the bolt

Releasing the leash

Making the Darkness wince


Beauty is Born

“How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all its beauty? It felt the encouragement of light against its being, otherwise, we will remain too frightened ”
