How do you give lustre to your life?
How do you commune with your instincts?
Can you trust your heart’s voice?
The Big Lake Michigan calls to me. I’m blocks away from it. It rains, and drizzles detouring my ‘lust’ to get there. And.. my lust will rise above the drab and dank of the morning and I will make my way to the beach later. Umbrella in hand if necessary.
THE BREATH OF MEMORY
Smell gives rise to memory
Fills you up with sand and water
waves and sun, yesterday
Scamps through your body.
Messages of long ago speak
In the flood of lost days
Tumbling over each other
To get to each other
The air around you
Ripens the stories with
Inhales of sweetness
Longing, sorrow, joy
There is no place within you
that is not filled with this breath.
YOu hunger for the sweetness
You anguish in the longing
The scent washes you,
punishes your dreaming
lays you tender in loves want
caresses the soul’s quest
holds you to whisper’s sweetness
Smell gives rise to all your memories
Breathe in the wonder of what you
Breathe in the flavors of life’s
Breathe in the colors of wishes and
Breathe in and smell the life of you
