In my quest to understand beauty, I was reminded of the quote expressing that beauty is very subjective and determined by the response from the viewer. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I feel that beauty is a living, breathing growing thing. Here is my poem that expresses this. I paired it with a close up photo of a freesia flower that bloomed in my garden. Many people have responded, “Oh, how beautiful” when they viewed the simple print.

Beauty is spark that leaps from the soul of the creator,
See it.
an idea formed in the mind of the artist,
Conceive it.
a shape molded in the hands of the craftsman,
Refine it.
a gift expressed from the heart of the giver,
Share it.
and a treasure beheld in the eyes of the receiver.
Love it.

Fresia best
