Inner Senses

I writing to appease to my inner senses First may the thoughts feel Will they harbor in some emotions From gestures created by love A grand craftsmanship Next may I smell the salted sea The wafting of a blown out candle The inner workings of roses inside my nose Outside do I see the lighthouse Burning just for my eyes to see And how I see the trees growing vastly With leaves of gold in Autumn I taste the honey from the courageous bees Leaving joy to my taste of sweetness And water so tasteless, but also oh so good However the taste of mint From the leaves of a plant Is so cool in the mouth And then I can hear The destination of the animals and the sea Morning doves and the dolphins bring glorious sounds A pleasure to bestow upon me All these senses compiled together Brings an experience like no other Full of life with exact desirability I feel all of these With emotions of grandeur I write I chronicle these events To bring enlightenment to my soul And for all to see The joys of my thoughts As through any possible day

    Russell never so well expressed - Perception of all things possible with the essence of our poetic senses in which viewers look beyond the words to something universal and profound, making what we write seem real. I believe Skat will find the to be an excellent entry for her contest. Warm Smiles, Connie

    It's good to finally make your acquaintance! Your lines tapped into the senses strong. A quote that I was reminded of as I read this: "You may not yet be where you want to be. But, be glad you're not where you used to be." Nicely done!
