To See Beauty
 
With eyes closed tight, and arms stretched out
The top, uneven peak can make you flinch
Laying both palms along the parallel sides
All five fingers will not fit evenly throughout
Placing palms down, until resting on its front
Two fingers reach its narrow, oh so, eloquent top
Fingers curl, around tapered, sandy, layers
Alike a beach castle, so tranquil and precise
An extraordinary piece, so heavenly divine
Moving both palms down, curving inward
Then suddenly straight down
Bumps, groves, curves and creases
A sure likeness of myself to be felt
Reaching around the bottom, ocean waves
No; far too layered and smooth
Can ones touch be mistaken, is this even real?
To look with ones eyes and see only dark
Not knowing the truth, no direction at all
For only to feel in the dark, and finding out
Beauty exists within ourselves and in all.
