Beauty Appears

I asked the earth, the sea and the deeps
heaven, the sun, the moon and the stars...

my questioning of them was my contemplation
and their answer was their beauty...

they do not change their voice, that is, their beauty
if one person is there to see
and another to see and the question...

beauty appears to all in the same way
but is silent to one and speaks to the other...

they understand it
who compare the voice received on the outside
with the truth that lies within.

St. Augustine
