Beauty on Earth – by Brian A. Wilkins
April 30, 2020

Snow-capped mountains, majestic waterfalls,
A monarch butterfly, the coast of Senegal,
The Great Barrier Reef, an eagle in the sky,
Machu Picchu ruins, a woman’s pretty eyes,

Love songs from the 80s, a tiger and cubs,
Abstract paintings on the walls of pubs,
A shiny gold nugget, a ballerina with grace,
A righteous loving woman with a smile on her face,

A child and their toys, a great white shark,
The zebras and giraffes at Serengeti Park,
A letter from a friend, trees glazed with ice,
Activists and advocates asserting civil rights,

Volcanic eruptions, sunsets by the bay,
A special person listening to what you have to say,
Beauty is in nature, beauty is in you,
Beauty is whatever to refresh the soul anew.

    Beautiful poem. And I’m not a poetry person.
