I have realised that it takes only one brief encounter with beauty and I am smitten with a rose-tinted world.

When I begin my day with the sunrise, the day that follows is lit as bright as my bedroom in a golden sheen of wonder.

When I meet a beautiful mind, they echo in my head like the sweetest birdsong, inspiring me, leading me onward.

When I see a beautiful face, all those countenances I meet from there after seem to me glowing.


When I witness beauty I feel beautiful, in heart and mind and all my Being. 

Like a yawn that spreads through the room.


Embrace it, for if a day in which we experienced no beauty arrived, we would wish for all those small moments back once again.
