Ever looked at a mountain and just thought about its formation?
Ever looked at how the waves kiss the shore?
Ever looked at how the sun rises and sets?
Ever looked at how a parent kisses a child, or a how a baby smiles so innocently?
Ever watched how eagles fly?
Ever lied down on a pitch black night and observed the stars? Wishing? Hoping?
Ever dived into the sea and marvel how come there is an entire world beneath?
Ever looked at her eyes and just thought to yourself how lucky you are?
I think this is what beauty is. It is quiet. It is not loud or tries too hard. It is not complicated. It will be seen when it wants to be seen. It is a discovery.
How come something so beautiful can be so simple? But that is the thing.
Inspired by a quote from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – “Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.”
