You're thinking there's an excess

Can you see the hard-ness
of the glass tabletop? If you look hard
you might see hard. Perceived through the eyes
as if pretending you've never grown fingers
to touch a forest, or feet
to learn where the trail leads.

You're thinking there's an excess
to capture.
Capture? No. It cannot be contained.
To recognize. Digest. Behold.
To see the blue of a new sky
while the lingering heaviness of the air after a summer rain
rests on your skin...what is that
that arises
when two things are sensed separately
with different organs? It's a new thing
different than the other things. Maybe
hard-ness can be seen
through something else.
