As we grow older Our perception of the world becomes habituated The world no longer surprises and delights us With its beauty and variety These moments of unmediated Spontaneous perception of the world Become rarer and rarer Artists, composers, musicians, poets Are always trying to reawaken in us That perception of the world Which we experienced as children The day to day pleasures and drudgery And worries and anxieties are pretty much our lot Until the horizontal plane is broken By a vertical spike, and for a moment We leave the everyday The divine, or the higher Or some indefinable superior force Is about us all the time And we need but look and attend to beauty In order to find it We're aware of something beyond us The envelope of the self melts And we become joined either with nature Or with loved ones or with powers That we can't easily define
