I Ponder Upon Such Beauty
Such Beauty is captured within nature’s gift,
The universe in her beautiful eyes he sees.
At the touch of the pearl heavens stars converse,
Creation beckons what the smiling face sees.
And, ‘mid the shrieks over the wave immerse,
He’s awe-struck at her beauty at the peak of the storm.
He smiles at the silence of the moon;
Watching over them mysteriously
Burning brightness illuminates the scenic view,
Such beauty exposed, he sighs, seeking refuge in silence.
Breathlessly he withdraws from the orchard’s golden bloom,
The trees wave, the night had her dream, as the stars dim.
