Forbidden beauty

Beauty leaks through barred windows
as drops of glistening rain moisten glossy green leaves

and the morning sparrow sings its excitement
wooing one but drawing all

Outside, the joyous world continues
Inside, the jealous witness lingers

What once drew not a second glance
is now vivid, its allure enhanced
What once passed from ear to ear unheard
now caresses all senses
A soothing whisper of beauty uncherished
yet now revered and oh so relished

Pretty sights, bright sounds
basking in nature’s spotlight
Liberated


May we enjoy the beauty all around us, the miracles we take for granted
and the love we postpone

    Love this poem!! It’s so perfect for how I feel right now because spring is officially here and after a long winter I just heard birds chirping outside my window for the first time this morning!
