Bearing flavors wantonly consumed
I greet each hue voraciously

                    I taste the spectrum more than I see

    I gotta say you're very talented yourself, if this little gem is any indication. Tough phenomenon to describe; a synthesthete yourself, perhaps? If so it must be an asset to poetic imagery. Thanks for the insight in any case, and thanks for the comment. "Ur"'s one of my very oldest, and no one's ever had anything to say about it before. Best Regards, Bill Masonis

    Wow, Awesome Crystalline. A flowing hyper-synchronistic rhythm from beginning to the very end. Like water molecules, flowing in a brook, over pebbles. Beautiful writing, Sincerely, Love, Moses Thanks for comments on my verses
