TASTE OF NATURE


With my eyes closed
head tilted back
I could see
the beauty of
a cloudless sky.

The breeze flowing
ever so gently
made the hair
on my arms
dance like ballerinas
on tippy toes.

Aroma of fresh
cut grass penetrating
deep within my lungs
passing over a
palette of taste buds
eager to burst
making me hungry.

Reaching within
the darkest recesses
of my sensibilities
the moment took hold.
The taste of nature
was taking over
rather quickly, too.

I could taste
the nectar of
fragrant flowers as
it flowed
like a river
washing away
the sediment of
prior flavors entertained
as though my throat
were a naked child
still innocent to life.

Ahhh…the lovely taste
of nature.
