carpet of gold_edited-1

Gold under my feet

scrunched up and unnoticed

Its beauty no lesser…

Gold in the heart

Hidden and unknown

Its love no less pure…

Gold in the earth

Undiscovered and covered

Its glow no dimmer…

So what if the gallery’s empty

So what if there’s no audience

So what if there’s no applause

Gold shines and beauty blooms

And love still spreads its fragrance

ย In a world

    Dear Anjali,

    What a wonderful poem. I like it a lot. This is beautiful :). Thank you for sharing it here.

    For me, this shares a truth that something that is beautiful is no more beautiful because we call it such, nor no less beautiful if we deny its beauty.

    All good wishes,
