Beauty
Ingrid, Age 12, Bowie, MD
                     
Beauty is in the restless eyes of tomorrow's future
Today's history
Yesterday's past

The sun is my beauty
sand-plumed swirls of dust
looming in the blue fragmented sky
Sun

The clouds are my beauty
White paper
beached across
the sands
of blue ink
spilling onto
the afternoon's blank sheets
Clouds

The moon is my beauty
Velvet wool
blanketing into
a weave of crescent-reamed
cotton
Moon

The sky is my beauty
a yellow sun with bathing sunlight
a white of cloud spilling into the sky's shaft
a crescent moon in the sky's sheeting velvet
The sky is all of these things
Beautiful
