Louis Gibbs



True beauty is

That rarefied quality

Radiantly emanating

From the soul

    Very true, beauty is within you.

    • Louis Gibbs

      Without question. Thanks, Goldie.

      Good write Louis. True beauty (of a sort) is me not singing! People say 'Beautiful, can't hear ya caterwaul!' lol.

      • Louis Gibbs

        Alas, I've never had the pleasure of hearing you sing, 'O'. My loss, I'm sure.

        • orchidee

          Phew, probably your gain - worth a million dollars NOT to hear me. People pay to NOT come to my concerts, ya know! heehee.

          Beauty lies
          where it's assigned
          within the eyes
          within the mind.

          Grand work Louis

            That nails it, Michael!

            Thanks LOUIS ~ For a reminder of what TRUE BEAUTY really is ! In several of my Poems I have have referred to the TRANSIENSE of Outer Beauty ~ cosmetics ~ clothes etc which fades with Age ! True Beauty is inner beauty (from the soul) which is ETERNAL and increases with Age. Mother Theresa is an excellent example ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN ~ CHRISTINA S is blessed with INNER (& OUTER !) Beauty. Pleases add a poem to her new FUSION ~ Love is ~ Thanks B.

              Stunning piece, Louis. I love this definition of beauty; as it is the way I see it too.

              True beauty is
              not seen with the eyes
              but felt in the heart
              & burned in the soul

              • Louis Gibbs

                Beautifully expressed, Santi! I love it. Thanks for your input.
