I close my eyes
bring a piece of chocolate to my nose
deep breathe in
I place a piece of chocolate on my tongue
it begins to melt
colors floating in my mind
The past, the present, and what could be
Notes I’ve never smelled before
I’ve got to get it out
I’ve got to write it down
I don’t want to forget a moment
What am I seeing?
Where are these beautiful visions coming from?
What are the flavors, aromas, and feelings that overwhelm me?
A gift to the senses
Peace to the brokenhearted
If life could be as beautiful as what I see
If life could be as peaceful as what I feel
If life could be as fragrant as what I smell
We would be changed forever
and the world would be a safer place
for all of us
