For my 11.5K friends from France who visited this blog yesterday. (https://shobanagomes.blogspot.com/2021/12/what-is-beauty-to-you.html). Thank you. I am repeating like a mantra that I want to visit France in 2022 and I hope that the situation with the virus just disappears and we get back to normal – I cannot really remember what normal is any more. Can you?
I am going, I am going, I am going (a million mantras). I have friends to visit there.
We are a day away from the New Year. May love and peace reside in all hearts – shobana
Here’s a poem I would like to share with you and all my friends throughout the world.
What is beauty to you? he once asked me. We stood among the flowers, on a hill where sunrises never set. The day remained gloriously endowed by all that charmed.
I stared ahead at the wonder of it all. Would a question like that require a tender heart, or would it be in passing that I should present my thoughts?
How do I begin to capture what I want to say in words?
Not all of the time does one know how to express tender words,
Not where beauty is concerned.
So I say to him,
When you see the world with tenderness,
No worth in words will take prominence,
Nor will you see flawed perfection,
As you believe you will see a vision,
Love is like the rainbow, a feast of sublimation after a storm.
