A note of admiration

A note of admiration

How quickly a beautiful thing
           becomes real
I mean like a painting
           or a poem or a piece of music
something fresh and exciting
           brought into the world
by a creative mind
           through the powers
of the imagination

sensibility and sensitivity
           part of our DNA
and we crave beauty
           and the intensity
of the pleasures that it brings 

           to the senses

and how a person too
           enters our world
is slowly stripped
           of the strangeness
of strangers and becomes
           a reality in our lives
someone indispensable
           someone we love
above all others
           and an attachment
is formed
           built on the power
of words exchanged and upon
           unwavering trust
