Has my beauty faded,
has all of the color drained?
Or is it that you just don’t see?
There is beauty in vibrancy,
in fresh, new life,
thriving in a warm glow.
But there is boundless beauty in subtlety,
in life surrendered to the quiet,
masked in prisms of cool color.
Appreciate the glory
that everyone can see.
Treasure the secret loveliness
that requires you to look a bit deeper.
