Under and Beneath

How does beauty manifest itself in demeanor?
With no regard for the skin
The hair
The obvious stuff of Hefnerian sensiblilities
With no regard for movement
Flexibility
The athletic show of bodily preening
With no regard for oneupmanship
Overpowering
The transitory nature of "things"

The steady resolve
The unabashed openness
The unambiguous commitment
The imperfection moving
from here to there and
taking time to look from
side to side and notice
the importance of the passing
landscape stretching into the
distance in the wake of togetherness
knowing that the goal is never
to be reached, but it is in the
striving that we find the mundane
stuff of life bursting with the beauty
of a crashing drop of rain and a
familiar eye glancing away then
back again to find its mark

Still beautiful
