I love the images of senses, the illustration of emotions.  The way it shows without telling, the way you live the moment rather than recalling it.  The way we become a part of a it when we are returned to that moment in our own experience.

My emotions too were lessened by the ethereal beauty line, but not so much as to stop reading.  Ethreal seems too abstract and you appear to be defining my emotions.  'Ethereal' may be the "right" word, but not the "exactly right word."  Was it Mark Twain who said the difference between the "right word" and the "exactly right word" is the difference between a lighning bug and lightning? 

Sometimes looking up a definition or synonym helps find the exactly right word or closer to it.  Here's a definition of ethereal.
Ethereal:  Characterized by lightness and insubstantiality; intangible, highly refined; delicate. See Synonyms at airy.

Love the poem.
