There is beauty in this world that is more than what the eyes can perceive. This beauty is as natural as nature, as apparent as instinct, and rare, much like common sense. This beauty is of and beyond this world. To understand it, you have to let go any preconceived notions you have and wipe your memory clean. Forget what you know of beauty, to understand and feel that, which cannot be seen.
Just as the grass will turn green in spring and the leaves, a myriad of colours in October, the Earth will become barren come winter. The sun will rise to give birth where decay once lay. It will rise to burn life to the ground. The rain will fall when the Earth is parched. It will fall even when the Earth has had too much to drink. This is the balance of nature.
Your body grows until it begins to shrink. You rise and fall with every breath. You disintegrate and renew each day. Year after year. Month after month. Day after day. The cycle repeats. Like love and and heartbreak. You love. You hurt. You forget and you learn to love again. This is the balance of life. Always precise. Not an event out of line.
Don’t question the timing of things. Everything happens precisely when it should. As it should. Precisely.
I feel the tides
change their direction,
as the moon takes its place
in the sky as high king.
A conspiracy is coming to life;
the secrets visible
to only a select few.
Something is simmering
just below the surface;
waiting to get out.
Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may diet. ~ Harry Kurnitz
Comments: I have been lucky enough to have had the chance to visit Paris a couple of times. I have to say this is one the most beautiful patios of a restaurant I’ve ever seen. I had the opportunity to photograph it in the summer months as well however, the second time around the grapes were missing! Has anyone been to the restaurant? Any reviews? I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
