To Do Again For the First Time

	

	
	Dive deep
	into my inner place 
	once more, maybe twice.
	
	Fly while standing still,
	as I did before
	I learned the truth.

	Lose myself in painting
	to the point of no breath
	or thought beyond the canvas.

	Write with abandon 
	about heart, butterflies,
	and her fierce beauty.
	
	Walk among white marble tombs,
	eat crawfish jambalaya,
	dance the zydeco.
	
	One more glass of wine,
	just the one...
	Any more and I’m lost.
	
	Never lose myself again
	to the blackness
	of no memory.

    Your captivating lines are more than perfection. Imagery and theme divine.

    Great! So far as I know, painting and wine are made for each other... Jack

    I want to add that I am attempting an oil painting and this inspired me so much. Even to the glass of wine.

    Beautyful description of memory fluctuating in the past as often happens overnight when sleeping is interrupted and it becomes hard to sleep again....

    : ) Love your work. All of this is a part of your life's intricate tapestry and regardless, it is a beautiful thing to look back and see how far you've come! Regardless of where you'e been, the fact is you now know where you do not want to go. Wonderful work, Jack. Will read more. Thank you for reading, "A Mystery" and your kind comment.

    To experience things for the first time over again. How cool would that be? I often feel like that when I get really into a book... I wish I could forget it all and then re-read it. I liked the feel of this one... the painting almost seemed real enough to walk inside of one.

    I've done it a few time, and there are those I'll never do again, want to or not.
