Beauty 

Published in Amarillo Bay January 2015, Beauty has been six years in the making. I started writing about Her in middle school, never quite finding the right words. Spring 2014, I tried again and captured Her in a poem. But it still wasn’t right. I turned Beauty into an essay, but it was only a photograph when I what I wanted was the experience. After six years of searching for the right words – of searching for Beauty though She can never be sought – I let go. And that’s when I found Beauty.
