"Rye Fields" by Ivan Shishkin‘The Harvest’ by Teri Skultety The Society February 10, 2018 Beauty, Poetry 3 Comments The sparkle on the river, the lights from distant shore, the cold and bitter glitter, the beckoning of more, Is beautiful to look at, ‘tis a pleasing sight to see, like a woman dressed for dinner, in all her finery. But all that shines is not silver, all that glitters isn’t gold, and if you want the treasure, and if the truth be told, the view that one must ponder, contemplate and get to know, from the outside looking in, the soul’s own steady glow, a light that’s undiminished, a fire that does not wane, the treasure of the spirit, a harvest of the plain, the common and the simple, the joy of days born new, the treasure is the wonder of the beauty within you. Teri Skultety writes a variety of poetry and fiction transcending the boundaries of genre and convention. In addition to her own books, Teri’s work has been published with various webzines including Juked, Punchnel’s, and Solarcide, as well as having been included in several anthologies.
