Exploring the concept of beauty

Consoling, exhilarating and appealing,
Astounding, jaw- dropping, mirror- cracking
Oh, beauty, thee provokes us in many ways,
Compelling all to gaze at you with amaze.

Some gaze at with eyes so profane,
Disturbed, some regard with disdain,
Some secretly admire but choose to feign,
But all yields to thy boundless reign.

Some are confused in their delusion,
Think of a veil hidden face as another moon,
What lies in the eyes of one beholder,
Not necessarily stir passion to smoulder.

Every single culture has its fair share,
Of unmatched beauty, I can declare,
Beauty in diversity adds to our ecstasy,
Bestowing to this universe euphoric serenity.

With racial diversity they all enamor,
They all enthrall us with their glamor,
There is mystic feel about all His creations,
As though sculptured & sent from heaven.
(C) K. Radhakrishnan

    The poet addresses the limited manifestation of the concept of beauty in the human species , perhaps only in the feminine gender , whereas the concept in fact covers beauty in all of Nature , and the abstract as well the physical . This poem picks up only one of the many forms of beauty.
