Beauty Needs No Reason



Beauty needs no reason
like bourgeois businessmen do
who strut with the deepest frowns
competitively struggling for what
beauty is not

The faceofthewings(lookclose
ly)has eyes
a dimple and a smile
That smile transcends




[Note:  Do you see the “Smiling Face” in the Swallowtail’s wings?]

  1. I don’t think I would have seen that face, had you not pointed it out. That’s one reason we need one another — to point to the things we’d otherwise miss.


  2. When I clicked the picture to enlarge it I saw Charlie Chaplin’s eyes and mustache – have I been out in the sun too long?
