Overwhelming Perfection

Our legs may be tired, but we do not know it.
Side by side we walk for miles,
Captured by the magic of conversation,
Pulled along by this simple wooded path.
The silence of the night covers us like a blanket.
No one dares to disturb this peace.
Our eyes are aglow with the bright magic of the moment.
Somehow the colors which illuminate our minds
Come out as we speak the wisest words.
The colors sail in the open air with intense freedom.
I laugh a little as the joy fights to break loose from my body.
Inaudible music flows through the air,
As clear as bright crystal.
Our pace quickens and slows with each turn in this most perfect song.
Soon, the darkness falls even thicker upon us,
But we are incapable of fear.
A bend in the path catches our eyes.
We are both frozen in our tracks,
Knowing exactly the thoughts in the other one’s mind.
Our eyes are now glued to this beautiful scene.
No, do not move, or the picture should surely vanish.
Falling down where we stand, we now sit on the path,
Unable to look away from what lies ahead.
Such a simple thing it seems,
And yet it holds more beauty than I could describe.
I feel everything and nothing, all at once.
The most glorious numbness begins to take hold.
One glistening tear falls, not from sadness,
But from the overwhelming perfection of what I now behold.
I hear the bell toll, and my spirit sinks.
For now I must leave this place of beauty,
And shatter the picture out of my eyes.
We slowly arise and take one last gaze.
The trudgingly, we depart.
In walking away from perfection,
A picture has been engraved into my mind’s eye.
A simple wooded path becomes a work of art
As it bends and falls away to nothing.
A broken log along the way adds tremendous beauty to the scene,
And yet I cannot explain why.
The shadows of magestic trees fall perfectly in line.
I realize that only a Godly paintbrush could have created such a picture.
I cannot bear to look back.
Mourning a natural Mona Lisa, I am forced back into monotonous reality.
