The Quest to Find Beauty

What yonder lies beyond the Moon and Mars in cosmos dark beyond the distant stars; a beauty in the universe serene, by mortal man, a beauty never seen. What myst’ries lie in nature’s vast enclaves beneath the ocean’s undulating waves; within the darkest depth’s unknown to man, a beauty hidden since our time began. Throughout our lives we set out on this quest to find these hidden treasures nature blessed; somewhere within the universe mystique, we hope to find this beauty which we seek. Perhaps if we look deep inside we find that beauty lies within our hearts and mind. July 1. 2019

This is well written and so accurately, beautifully touches on the questions of wonder as born from human nature. While each century has less unexplored places to venture and questions to answer they seemingly never run out. I can't imagine anyone not relating to this fine write. I like your new pic very much! All the best ... CayCay

These last two lines say it all. Beauty being-- Within. Many look beyond the surface, in space and through words. The Heart and Mind, it is a beautiful place to linger in. While being true to who you are! The light will always shine through. Such a wonderful write my dear friend. :) Brandy

Beautiful sonnet John, so true though, the beauty we seek is within and maybe already within our grasp. Tom

There is something to what we seek...always just a little out of reach — the perfect love, beauty and peace. That is left for eternity. Lovely piece, my friend!
