Natural art appreciated: # Smooth challenge.

Common stones,

a masterful source of adoration

are frequently unearthed.

Unmitigated worthiness

is a byproduct of awe,

an understatement so to speak.

Give credit

where credit is due.


You are the lucky one,

collecting beautiful

memories with sight.

This canvas deserves

more than

interpretive eyes.

Thus, appreciation flows

without the need for

glamourous recognition.

I know beauty by

the feel, by the

tranquil affinity

of material supremacy.

Pristine surfaces

devoid of imperfections,

created with ageless love.


How is it

that your natural condition

feels industrial?

Not even man can

replicate such fine textures

without the help of tools...

Nature holds

the secret to aesthetic design

in her vast catalog of

c r e a t i o n.

Intricate blueprints

executed under favorable

conditions eons in the making.

If eyes are the windows to the soul,

then touch is the partner of contrast

I know beauty when I

feel it...

    Really liked this Lamar. Excellent entry into the challenge

    I missed this!! I love and have some of those gemstones. Good for grounding and good for feeling ..and also meditation actually.. ya know this was rad ..was sort of existential and a little philosophical but intimate. Well done Lamar. I just could just not seem to think of anything long enough for this challenge, but this is probably the one I related with the most! Liked your closing image too lol! 😁

    This was such a breath taking entry to the smooth challenge!! It was elegant and had this luxurious feel to it!! The line "I know beauty when I feel it..." was just genius and rings so true for me!! It applies to more than just stones for me! I may not be able to interpret art "properly" but I know when it makes me feel something that it's a beautiful piece!! And this was one of those times!! I love how well you were able to capture that essence in this poem!! Great work Lamar!

  • This was absolutely elegant and beautiful! Loved this poem sooooo much!

    Ah creation, so very wonderful. Yet nothing truly beautiful is perfect. It is the flaw within which enrichens and make something or someone truly great.

  • Manisha Dhalani3 months ago

    The line about appreciation is so beautiful. This poem is so romantic!

  • To feel is to see with depth.
