The Unbearable Brightness of Beauty

Beauty

*

Beauty, your colours

Wash the eye with paint and pain

In rainbow prisms

*

Beauty, your music

Astounds the ear to silence

In cadenced rhythm

*

Beauty, your raw touch

Stirs the flesh to birth and death

In passion driven

*

Beauty, your deep scent

Calls forth sudden memory

In flash unbidden

*

Beauty, your rich taste

Licks the tongue to wild delight

In manna given

*

Beauty, your glory

Ripples water, shatters stones

In revelation

*
