How do you define "Pretty"

Wherein lies the words to express "Pretty"

"Pretty" is not beautiful nor is "Pretty" gorgeous

But, for "Pretty" to be beautiful requires only dressing for it

and to be gorgeous, "Pretty" needs only to smile

So how do you define "Pretty"

Perhaps "Pretty" is defined only by that occasional glance

A side view of a silhouette

Where sunlight streams through her hair

and sparkles flash in her eyes

Where crinkles wrinkle her cheeks

and golden locks fall upon her brow

Or is "Pretty" the grace of roses

embraced and presented to her breast

I think.........

"Pretty" is beyond description

and that........

"Pretty" is contained in a vision

of a woman without guile


I think 'pretty' is where that elusive beauty so out of reach, softens enough to touch, in the same way unbounded limits of love are poured into vessels and left for us to discover its rare vintage. I don't think I can define it, though, either!

    Although you say "Pretty" is beyond description, I think you've done a nice job of describing it. Good Luck in the contest! (I entered this one, too.)
