Sublime

Imagine yourself at an art gallery. Surrounded by masterpieces, you stand in the center, gazing at the most beautiful painting you have ever seen. As you marvel at its beauty, a flood of words, detailed descriptions came to mind. Your hand itches and you take out from your bag a pen and paper. You start to write, nailing the abstract beauty into words. Satisfied, you slowly start to walk away. Another painting catches your attention. There, tucked in a corner, was something far more splendid than the first. What you thought was beautiful paled in comparison to what you are beholding now. You simply stood, words taken from you. It was hard to describe; a piece of art so raw and powerful and…simple. It was beautiful in its own inexplicable way. And while people were astonished with the painting in the center, this one, somehow hidden from the spotlight, had a more astounding effect. You stare at the others standing in awe, their breath taken away. You can see it in their eyes. Words…will never be enough to capture the subtlety and madness of this art.
