Exquisite

 

“There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion.”
— Edgar Allan Poe

 

You flower before me
so beautiful, so unique
like nothing I’ve seen before.
Ordinary beauty is just that
a comment on a sunset
or a mountain
but you are strange and wonderful
To compare to anything else
seems a betrayal of the quality
that exists solely in your being.
— G A Rosenberg

 

To truly appreciate beauty, it helps to appreciate uniqueness. For something to stand out, it must be different from the every day. The more we can love the unique and the strange, the more beauty we can perceive in the world. It is only when we abhor the different that our lives start losing hue and our worlds fade towards a uniform grey.
Blessings, G

Denying the Real… A Thought Stream

 

“Reality denied comes back to haunt.”
― Philip K. Dick

 

Hidden thoughts, hidden actions…the refusal to realize what is in front of us…we insist that 2 + 2 = 5, that we are better than we are, happier and more together and a string is pulled, and it all starts falling apart… that secret heart under the floorboards… the raven crying out nevermore… Poe understood reality denied … we all learn it in time… as we build up our house of cards… the way I feel when I am with him / her surely means they feel the same… its ok if I do it this once.. nobody saw me… its ok… but it never is , just our denial grows stronger as we add another brick…yet we can blast through these bricks… if we don’t the universe is kind enough to do it for us…tho it is a cruel kindness that leaves devastation in its wake..yet from the devastation we rise naked, vulnerable with denials and lies revealed…then we can choose how to clothe ourselves again…
Blessings, G
