Beauty is everywhere. We interpret it differently. But what does it really mean when you find something beautiful, something even you yourself are afraid not to have the answer?

Beauty Revelation

 

By H.F

 

 

Oh! There goes the wind!
The flowing air hauls me this way and that way
I wish I had on my wings.
Oh! This feeling! The sight of the glorious sun!
Sunlight transfigures a deciduous tree. Leaves falling.
But it’s only May, yet the leaves fall beautifully
Ah, yes! I feel it. I feel the wind bringing me to the further truth.
 
What is that tree? It was once sick, now like a piece from the garden!
Oh, Jesus! No! Oh, God!
Yes! That’s the word. Oh, God! Such a beautiful tree!
Its leaves are growing, branching to smallest masterpieces
Like many earths of all sizes. Oh, such beauty!
 
What is that tree? It keeps growing. It keeps feeding me!
I love the tree now. Oh, I am at peace!
The wind finally hauls me closer to the tree
I see it now. The tree is the truth
It reminds me of my daughter, Ruth
But why is the tree the bait?
Am I being led astray? It should already know it’s too late
Ruth is gone
The tree is too beautiful! Yes, she was beautiful
Oh what’s this feeling? I know this feeling. I know this feeling.
 
What is that tree? Oh, the wind flies me around it!
It’s the same tree Ruth always spent time with
Back laid on its raw material
Yet it provided more comfort
Ruth loved the tree, as the tree loved Ruth
It spoke to her dearly
Yes, I loved her dearly.
 
The tree. I love the tree. I feel Ruth’s presence.
Oh, such beauty! This feeling!
Oh, God!
Oh, God!
Please let me hold on to that feeling!
Let me see the tree for a little while!
Oh, what now? The wind decides to fly me away from the tree
No, wind. I said no, wind!
It flies me away
Few feet away
Several more away
And more and more away
And most more and more away
Ruth
Ruth
Ruth
You are beautiful
I missed you
