Poems about beauty - # # Ordinary Beauty

# # Ordinary Beauty - Poem by Sonya Florentino

A half-woven basket
on the ground
Abandoned in the
Hot midday sun

A water-color rendering
Of silence, warmth
A moment all too fleeting
Soon to be gone

Who would have caught
the beauty of the interrupted
The timeless, the temporary

Who would have thought to capture
the beauty of the unseen,
the subtle, the ordinary

Thanks to the artist,
The poet, the bard
Who remind us all that
Life is Art

And Creation
The very act of Love
A gift to us
From Heaven above
