Her mind is crisp as


This is what lettuce looks like.

freshly stocked lettuce.

Her lips are vibrant as

strawberries two days before expiry.

Her eyes are green as

I look into them and hear her words,

“I think you are beautiful as well.”

      Hi Raymond, Yes “beauty” is a subjective term isn’t it? As well internal beauty can really add light and confidence to a person’s appearance, making physical attributes even more beautiful. Glad to see you here!
