Beauty…

beauty isn’t the only thing
in the eye of the beholder
EVERYTHING
is in the eye of the beholder
you do see the problem
with that
don’t you

Beauty in our lives…

White Dog on Road

I love German Shepherds.  This is what my dog looked like.  I was going through dog pictures for my blog and thought about the dogs I thought were beautiful and those I knew were not the breeds for me.

I just have to see a Shepherd and I can hardly breath.  I want to curl up next to him immediately.  I try to be polite, holding out my hand and everything, but their beauty and strength, their intelligence and that FACE…I have a hard time keeping my hands off of them.

My dog weighed over a hundred pounds and slept with us.  Shepherds remind me of wolves and I like that.  I take them seriously.  I love Dobes, but skinny dogs make me feel bad and I always want to overfeed them.  I also feel as if they will break easily.

I love mutts too.  Scruffy, energetic and fun loving dogs, with that silly grin and that spark in their eyes that always tells you how happy they are to play.  Mutts are great.

We are all drawn to certain things.  Not just when it comes to dogs, but to everything.  There is something inside each of us, that makes us see beauty in this, but not in that. We’re like that with people, cars, furniture, artwork, with EVERYTHING.

When we walk into a place, public, or a private, and we feel as if we want to leave, that’s a clash of feelings for what’s around us.  It makes us uncomfortable when we aren’t around the things we find beautiful.  That’s why it’s SO important to fill our living spaces with things we LOVE.  If we’re living with our great aunt’s china figures and we hate them, we won’t be happy where we are.

We need to fill our surroundings with the things we find beautiful, even if they only cost two-dollars.  When we do that, we’ll always be happy to come home.  If we have something expensive that doesn’t make us happy, it’s not worth having.  Decorate with passion and love and don’t care about what anyone else tells has to say.

I’m a cat person through and through.  But if I ever got another dog, it would be a German Shepherd.  Having said that…sometimes a dog simply finds us and that’s that.

The flowers are sooooo beautiful…

Beauty…

There’s something beautiful about this picture.  The colors, what looks like mercury, wet silver and gold, lays on top.  The splatter, the palette…it takes my breath away.

Some things…a poem

topless man with gold and green floral headdress

some things
are almost
too beautiful
to write about
to beautiful
to take in
the second
you see them
that moment when
your heart
stutters
and you don’t know
what you’re looking at
that makes you stop in your tracks
that makes you stare
you’re just sure
that what you’re seeing
is perfection

Sleeping Beauty…a Story Poem

woman wearing dress and lying on teal cloth

the story you’ve heard
about Beauty
is a lie
made up by men
who think their
KISS
is
somehow
magical
and
life giving

it’s
a poor
substitute
for actually
bringing life into the world
but men do keep
trying to
be better than
women
at every turn

as if that lie
wasn’t bad enough
we are expected to believe
that when Beauty
woke
she went off with
the guy
who kissed her
and married him
never having MET him
before that very moment
but again
the story was written
to bolster men’s
sagging egos
and make women
look like weak
and desperate
comatose
things
who were
delighted to be
chosen

there’s absolutely
nothing at all
romantic
about being
helpless
and
unconscious
until some creepy stranger
kisses you
but that’s exactly
what little girls
were taught

pretty pathetic
if you ask me
especially
when the truth
of the matter is that
Beauty
took a nap in the woods
and a strange
man found her
and kissed her
after which
she fought him
and sent him on his way
limping and without
his horse
which she kept
as payment
in exchange for not
taking his life

Beauty
was tough
no one kissed her
without her permission
NO ONE
and while she didn’t like
the guy
he did make her laugh
when he told her there was
definitely something wrong
with HER
since ANY WOMAN
would be thrilled to have him

and FYI
she renamed the horse
Smoke
since that’s what the guy’s
dreams went up in
