Let Beauty

When the soul cries out for beauty,
feed her with beauty, so
like the pollen of bees,
beauty is powerful food.

Like the honey of bees,
beauty’s sweetness heals the
soul’s wounds, strengthens
her wings for flight.

When the soul cries out for beauty,
give her beauty to drink
like humming bird’s nectar,
straight from flower’s kiss.

When the soul cries out for beauty
bathe her in beauty, let a
thousand and one drops fall
as dew on the soul’s parched skin.

Receive each kiss of beauty
like a wedding night. And
in your own most beautiful voice
welcome her, saying Yes, Yes!
