Beauty Calls

Beauty is the voice endlessly calling and so we see, so we reach...Someone is behind it, in it. Beauty Himself completes.  Ann Voskamp

Touch beauty! Write a poem. Draw or paint a picture. Be united with the beauty you see, pass into it, receive it!

From The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis:

What more do we want? Ah, but we want so much more -- something the books on aesthetics take little notice of. But the poets and the mythologies know all about it. We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words -- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.
