Beauty Distracts

We can often find beauty in unexpected places. It is generally a function of our awareness, state of mind and what we choose to focus on.


  1. “Beauty for an instant through a tattooed trunk throwing triple twenty!”

    WOW! Talk about Alliteration! :) I thought I used to anxiously alliterate almost all my words but you beat me to it! :)

    Your verse is above me though…what is a triple twenty?

    But for sure yes in general I agree beauty like most things is how we perceive it…

  2. Pratish says:

    Triple twenty in this instance refers to the highest score on a dartboard. If you ever get a chance to see a darts tournament live you should take it – it will probably give some context to the alliteration too.

  3. Oh OK…I understand it now…

  4. Interestingly it also reminds me of the term- “shoot the moon” for some reason…

  5. Ravi Naicker says:

    Very intriguing stuff. Your poetry allows its words to take residence in its readers. Enigmatic!!!

  6. Thanks Ravi.. glad you’re enjoying it! I have been a bit tied up with work but I plan on putting my entire book online in this format. Whereabout are you from?

    Sorry, I never got to replying to your response. I am from Umzinto on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast. How can I get hold of your book? Take care. Keep on writing.
