beauty

Is there anything more beautiful than a well-deserved standing ovation?

            yes; the face of the person receiving it.

Is there anything more beautiful than untouched, slightly melted snow?

            yes; the way it looks when it's falling.

Is there anything more beautiful than a bag of silkily fresh blood?

             yes; the life of the person who needs it.

Is there anything more beautiful than a soft, warm bed at night?

            yes; the exhaustion that drives you there.

Is there anything more beautiful than tiles slick with steam from a hot bath?

            yes; the way the water feels on your tired legs.

Is there anything more beautiful than your face?

            yes; your soul.
