It Started Out Small

it started out small -
  just some flowers
(as if it were possible to describe
  any flowers using the word "just")
but then one thing led to another -
  the setting sun 
     shining in that particular way 
        it sometimes does
  flowering bushes 
     with such delicate blossoms 
        it took my breath away
until finally the whole world opened up 
  to reveal its beauty
     my heart seeing 
     what my eyes alone could not -
  loveliness on top of loveliness
even with my regular diet of awe and wonder
  it was almost more than I could process
my internal circuitry 
  could scarcely take it in
what can I say?
  sometimes the beauty of this world
     simply cannot be contained
