Synaesthesia

color awe
so crystal as to hear an
enigma

whiffed fragrance
a strangeness to scarcely taste
obscure scenes

light is sown
feel the warmth that follows miles
minds do smile


-----------------------

"An individual whose conscious awareness is such that a sound becomes fused with a sense of color and taste; for whom each fleeting impression engenders a vivid, inextinguishable image; for whom words have quite different meanings than they do for us—such a person cannot mature in the same way others do, nor will his inner world, his life history tend to be like others'."

from:

Luria, A. R. & Solotaroff, Lynn (translator) (1968) The mind of a mnemonist: a little book about a vast memory. Jonathan Cape

    I've played a few video games which apply this same perspective to it. This was very trippy, yet strong & visually stimulating. Per usual, well done. :)

    Beauteous! I am smiling... That quote at the bottom there opened my eyes to a whole new consciousness. Which made me read your words over & over again. Loved it! :o)
