imagined for mlmm sunday writing prompt: inner beauty

What does inner beauty mean to you? How do you cope with society’s unrealistic ideals of physical beauty? What do you do to feel attractive? Confident? Inspired? What message would you like to impart about beauty to the youth of today? we are asked.

In my mind’s mirror, I reply:

moving to music; swaying, emoting, interpretative dance of the moment

meditation in motion; slow, flowing movements of a tai chi form

listening to my heart beat; breathe and breath

calm as a koi pond; as chill as Cali

bubbles prism; spin and swirl

unique; fey; whimsy

I was I am I will

contemplate

upon the

beautiful

inside

me
