Building Beauty

Just because it’s old,
doesn’t make it beautiful.

Just because it’s beautiful,
doesn’t make it old.

Beauty can be as ageless,
as endless — as us.

Vintage blue-glass bottles,
bluebirds in the grass.

Light-blue notes echoing
in empty structures.

Untold ancient strictures,
built up, torn down.

Everything thrusts peace
at us, as we rebuild.
