Uncommon Senses

My eyes sip the lemon sea
I inhale its salty spice
and the sugar sweet bouquet of wild roses
I taste the juicy sunset orange
and the mist of farewell tears chills my heart
I touch the silk purple coverlet clouds
and smooth them over restive waves.
I listen to the pulse of the cold blue star
and sing a silent song of longing
I reach up to embrace the gathering truth
I kiss the unabashed face of mother moon
I know the cause of every wrinkle.
I fall into a sated state
Dream and yet awakened
I have a sense of time and self and place
I need only to savor the manna of nature
To sustain my spiritual life.

    Thank you for your encouragement. I sat on a terrace in the Algarve, Portugal transfixed by the sunset's farewell. I dreamed. I wrote. I shared. I hope to experience nature through your mind's eye. jlB

    Wow! This is so beautiful. I had to read it twice to savor the richness of the imagery. I am adding it to my "Favs List". Thanks for sharing, John. Annalise
