B e a u t y??….. in diversity!

IN THE EYES OF THAT KID,
AT THAT TEA-STALL,
THE VERY SIGHT OF A GIRL,
IN HER VERY CHERISHED ATTIRE!

THE FACE OF THAT HAWKER IN MOONLIGHT,
THE SMILE OF THE INFANT SPRITE.

ON MY MAID’S FACE OVER A CUP OF TEA,
IN THOSE GLEAMING EYES OVER THE EXCHANGE OF A LESSON.

IN THE TEARS OF A SOLDIER,
IN THE FROWN OF A TODDLER.

ON MY MOTHER’S FACE IN RETURN OF A DAY-OFF,
IN MY FATHER’S SMIRK ON MY GROWN-UP SHOW OFF!!

IN THE DOORMAN’S SIGHT LOOKING FOR SOME REST,
IN THAT KID’S MIND FULL OF ROTE-LEARNING PEST.

IN THE DARK TONED SKIN WITH A HEART OF GOLD,
IN THE SHABBILY ADORNED GENTLEMAN SQUATTING BY THE ROAD.

THAT GIRL BY THE ROAD SELLING CAP,
RETURNING AT DUSK TO HER MOTHER’S LAP.

IN MY GRANDMA’S WRINKLES,
TO THE SMILE IN SOMEONE’S TICKLES….

BEAUTY IS ALL AROUND,
ALL WE NEED TO DO IS OPEN OUR EYES TO LITTLE THINGS, MANY PEOPLE AND MANY MORE SOULS…. ❤
