Honouring beauty

It’s day 3 of the 3 Day, 3 Quote challenge. Thank you Sumyanna for this interesting challenge, which has given me a chance to stretch my imagination. I repeat my apology for not passing it on.

If you wish to honour beauty
do not decorate it
nor claim possession
of the smallest piece
but gaze at it, then turn away
cradling it in your memory

This quote was inspired by my visit, yesterday, to a Cornish waterfall. If you read the post I wrote on the trip it will show you why.
