"My Most Beautiful Thing" ('blogsplash' poem)




~The Most Beautiful Thing ~


Those rare tangible moments

When you feel so alive

When every cell of your being

Overflows with joy

When your love for life

Transcends the shell of your body

Enwraps you, sets you afloat

Presents you with myriads of senses

You do not know the name of

Yet know so intimately

When this all-consuming love lifts you up

And shows you the world as it is

In its simple glory of existence -

Those fragile moments of truth

Are the most beautiful thing.




Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur

  1. I know those moments and reading your poem raises the ghost of them. Not an easy topic, but I think you were successful. I feel a lifting as I read.
