Beauty is limitless, all-pervading, and available instantaneously - if we could but develop the sense to perceive and receive it.

Beauty se(ns)es Beauty

The gambol of a li'l bundle of fleece wool,
The wondrous wattle of a wrinkled turkey,
The cavernous reflection of a raccoon's eye,
The snow-white melting softness of a down feather,
This and more hath my mother gifted to my heart.

The curious expansion of my vision,
Attempting to reconcile limited distance for a limitless horizon,
The indescribable tranquility of relief after the passing of a headache,
The delicious regression to childhood,
From a toothless infant's touchless kiss upon my cheek,
This and more hath my mother gifted to my heart.

The thrilling pull of icy cold wind into my lungs,
Gazing upon the stillness of a frozen lake,
The ecstatic dance of a morning dew drop upon a leaf swayed by the breeze,
A mischievous stray lock teasingly fallen upon a maiden's brow,
A nonagenarian's smile from a hug of his great grandchild,
A lioness carrying its child with the tenderest hold in its terrific jaws,
The cooing tinkling gurgle of a clear brook in the stillness of a cool dawn,
This and more hath my mother gifted to my heart.

Yet, mother had reserved the best for last.
The riot and explosion of sky hues at sunset,
The death of pregnancy, for birth of compassion,
The last step of a servant taken in service to his brothers and sisters in humanity, and
The last breath of a soldier, as he gave his blood and body in sacrifice to his motherland, and to his Mother's hand.
