Interesting posts - beautiful looking or truly beautiful in nature/soul/essence?
This was the very topic that caused me to pen a free verse poem called

Looking Good?

What to wear (or not to?)
knowing clothes speak
complementing, betraying,
shielding, revealing

Images - absorbed imperceptibly, constantly
- that we all 'buy'
shaping choices, constantly
pausing seldom to separate the cloth
from the person,
the body from the soul

Sleek skin, hollowed cheek, seductive mouth
image-selling, image-sought
and - if found - is prone to disappoint
since beautiful wrapping, once undone
often reveals an
unexpectedly vacant interior
....and a fool

A myriad of visual feasts
await to captivate,
mass-media tinsel
reflecting in its consumers.

Plainly-wrapped precious gifts
are rendered inferior,
perhaps never to be seen
....or shared
in a world that prefers
the beautiful-looking
to the beautiful.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
(Henry David Thoreau)
