You Can't Capture Beauty

I tried to capture the sun's rays,
but they did not shine as radiant.

I tried to capture a butterfly's grace,
but it swiftly fluttered away.

I tried to capture the blissful breeze,
but it refused to be confined.

I tried to capture the joy of my heart,
but gradually it faded away.

I now learned something,
something astonishingly profound.

You can't capture beauty,
nor keep it in a jar.

We must live in the moment,
live the way we are.
