smiles. great short...for one, i believe beauty lives at all ages...just a bit different you know...and that not all are the same and one size not fitting all...not a bad thing...at all. smiles.
True, beauty lies in the eyes of beholder and people should be beautiful from heart.
Succinct and yet, speaking volumes. Beauty need not be a factor of age, right? Superbly written. I love it.
Beauty is many things. Great words.
Yes, why are we weakened for age count..great piece
So very true. Beauty exists beyond a wrinkle free skin. And, I think, inner beauty increases with age and experience. Nicely and concisely penned!
a much fuller view of beauty
A thing of Beauty is a joy forever its value increases ..Jennifer ur lines are also a thing of Beauty i think coming from a beautiful mind..Smiles:))GOD<3U
Now THIS is beautiful! And I love the last line. Wisdom!
Such a beautiful poem, love the last two stanzas. Great write, Jennifer.
Short but so full. A beautiful poem.
I love this especially now that I am getting those lines lol
Just beautiful Jennifer--I love it when you write in the shorter forms
Very succinct - and wonderfully characterized. I had a take on beauty in my poem this week as well. Thanks for sharing.http://photodiction.blogspot.ca/2013/05/if-i-choose-to-live-alone.html
lots of important truth in this Jennifer
I so identify with your title - my entire world is out of focus these days, but it is likely more beautiful that way!
How often this question is asked and yet the way you pose the "as if" is perfect. Nice conservation of words and a good message as well.
fabulous nugget of wisdom!
Very true. Our societies tend to revolve or focus on a beauty that so limits us to see the deeper beauty in everything around us that can really soothe the soul...
Very well written, genuine and succinct.
where one size could never fit allVariety and choices make life more interesting. Truly said Jennifer!Hank
loved the metaphorical play! very profound!
the 'as if' is really the crux of this. great way to start it off, gives it that hint of sarcasm as well.
A beautiful truth.Anna :o]
Fantastic. Our culture's view of beauty is horribly skewed.
.as if... I believe it when I look up on other faces, not so much my own. ;P LOVE this snippet of a poem. ( (commenting late for Poetry Pantry #149) )
Amen to that. Even the most structurally perfect, expertly made up young face looks unfinished, somehow. Let me see a little of the life that face is living!
