Inner Architecture – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

RDP – Thursday – Architect



“True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.”  Audrey Hepburn

Inner Architecture

There were times,
more than she could remember,
that a voice would say
take your beauty and trade,
however, while she valued
her external beauty
for beauty defined her,
far more did she value her
inner architecture being
a foundation for all that
seeks the good and the wise,
a real beauty.

  2. The “inner architecture” is not something the women in my family were taught – emphasis always on the exterior. Empowering thought.
