“Touched by Beauty”

 

We all want to be touched
by wonderful music, beautiful art, love of our fellow man.
To be moved, drawn, taken to places unknown.
To feel an overwhelming chill from a beautiful orchestral phrase,
to be filled with warmth and joy from the color of a canvas,
to feel the wonder from touching the creativity of mankind.
How music, art and poetry cause such emotion is unknown,
but we all know when we are there –
what a cold world it would be without
the beauty of music, art and poetry.
