A thing of beauty.. is a joy forever.

John Keats (31 October 1795 – 23 February 1821) a poet, a lover, a soul who saw what many couldn’t and said what had been unsaid for too long, un-felt by many and maybe not yet understood by much more.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing…

‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever’ as the phrase announces, a thing of beauty, be it a beautiful rose swinging in garden beside or the rains pouring in the green valley, even the high raised mountains, every thing created by the almighty is beautiful and has a soothing effect on a turbulent, disheveled soul.

A memory of a long lost friend, a stupid mistake done in childhood, the first love, the first touch, the first kiss, a small eye contact with a cute stranger, the touch of mother’s hand when we are depressed, father’s hug when we accomplish something, even the tears that come out after a great laugh- a thing of beauty, a sweet memory has the power to revive us even in the saddest of the mood, makes us smile even in depression.

A beautiful object is treasured in our mind forever, it provides an eternal and everlasting joy of happiness that never fades with time but multiplies manifold whenever we revisit those memories. As it’s said ‘A perfect world will be a disaster’ thus life is imperfect, unexpected and un-satisfying, but that’s the way it’s meant to be, ain’t it?

What if every thing goes the way we want? What if one day we wake up and know we have no dreams left unfulfilled? What if every rain accompanies a beautiful rainbow, will there be the same happiness when we get the opportunity to see it once or twice in springs? What if every night is blessed with a sweet and lovely dream, then would there be the same smile on our face when we wake up, when we usually have them once in the blue moon? Even the repetition of the most perfect moments in our life continuously will cause mental trauma...

Life is a struggle for success, our paths towards success many a times gets obstructed by deceit and selfishness of our friends and we suffer pangs of defeat and in much destructive cases loss of hope which makes us develop a sad and disdainful approach to life… and in those cases of utter darkness the only things that has the power to bring us out of the state is- memories of the beautiful times spent with our loved ones..

A thing of beauty is a joy forever,
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Therefore, on every morrow, are we wreathing
A flowery band to bind us to the earth,
Spite of despondence, of the inhuman dearth
Of noble natures, of the gloomy days,
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all,
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall
From our dark spirits. Such the sun, the moon,
Trees old, and young, sprouting a shady boon
For simple sheep; and such are daffodils
With the green world they live in; and clear rills
That for themselves a cooling covert make
'Gainst the hot season; the mid-forest brake,
Rich with a sprinkling of fair musk-rose blooms:
And such too is the grandeur of the dooms
We have imagined for the mighty dead;
All lovely tales that we have heard or read:
An endless fountain of immortal drink,
Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.

~John Keats

Hey, Hi...

"A Thing of beauty is a joy forever..." truly said...but like you mentioned in the prologue, not many understand what 'Beauty' is...like people say,"Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder"
the day people see the art behind every creation, people would understand what beauty truly is, and so, it would be "joy forever..."
