Inspiration Delight


Standing with my eyes closed

I taste dark, red cherries on my lips

a dream of colors

falls upon me

and a feast of flowers

celebrates me in pink, orange, blue

red and yellow, too.

All the blue of the world

becomes you.

I hear you whispering on my side,

Your blue presence lays upon my skin,

your fingers plant roots of love

on my forehead,

and you become the essence of all delights

scents and colors.

I will remain as I am for as

long as I am

enchanted with you on my side.
