Defining Beauty

                                   by Jim Rapp

How to define a beauty that the eyes cannot see;
Beauty of heart, beauty of mind, beauty of spirit;
Beauties that reflect what's dwelling inwardly.

Heart beauty is a beauty of openness,
Receptiveness of all who come to it,
Tender, receiving, enfolding, enriching-ness.

Mind beauty is keen, quick, incisive,
Filled with wisdom, practicality and wit,
Sure of self but not, of other's lights, dismissive.

Spirit beauty is most beautiful of all,
Heaven breathed, heaven-lit,
It knows when to bow and to stand tall.
