Beauty Lost

Shining, the moon fades from sight beneath a cloud
Shadowing the truths of reality
Masking light that should be seen

Is it's beauty lost because it is out of view

A single wave melds into the rise and fall of the ocean
Hidden, the power that pulls the tides
Lost but not forgotten as it rolls unto the sand

Is it's beauty lost because it is out of view

Singing ceases from a branch where a bird flies off into the sun
Blinded by light masking perceptions in flight
Missing from the truths of reality unseen

Is it's beauty lost because it is out of view

Fairness of face lost beneath the wrinkles of time
Ageless mind of memories now unheard
Fading from sight, the light of what once was

Is it's beauty lost because it is out of view

------- Author's Notes -------

Perhaps the perceptions of things lost are not really lost at all, but just unseen by those that cannot see.

Limited Perception/Awareness

Insightful. Truly insightful. How we limit beauty only to our awareness of reality any given moment; to our senses. Beautiful line, this : "Fairness of face lost beneath the wrinkles of time". Profound and beautifully expressed.
