Too Much Beauty

is there such a thing as too much beauty?

i'm on overload

and feel I'm losing the ability to absorb

like a waterlogged sponge

I feel the need to ration it -

to dole it out in measured doses

so I can comprehend the essence

of each new vista, slowly...

let it drip

deep into the hidden recesses of my being

like an intravenous elixir

until i meld with the energy that surrounds me

then spread it on the bread

that is my everyday life

my cup runneth over
