ART AND BEAUTY
Similar in initial impression
Similar in its multi-layered complexity
Similar in their conflicts
And forever linked by the danger
Pain and solitude
Hidden beneath the surface.
Upon first gaze
The obvious intrigues immediately
The fit. The form. The function.
Attention is commanded!
Upon closer inspection
The many layers reveal themselves
Warmth, sensuality, sexuality, intensity,
Sensitivity, intelligence, betrayal, elegance,
Lounging gently behind the aesthetic façade.
As the layers unfold
The many tensions rise
Struggling in a cacophony of conflict
Dueling to have the greatest impact
On the uniqueness of its character
The simple versus the complex
The concrete versus the abstract
The subtle versus the obvious
The sweet versus the bitter
Harmony versus chaos
Right versus wrong
Love versus hate.
All fight to mask
The underlying abyss of danger, pain and solitude
This is the essence of art and beauty
This is love!
