Autumn morning breezes

Red wine path

The first waft and the landscape ahead flashes before me. The first sip and I stumble gently over the threshold. Each sip, one more step into another world. Tentative steps, then bold, then giddy skipping along the path.

One more sip.

Lifebloom

A lifetime is a moment
a heartbeat,
or if you're lucky — a few.
Live every blade of grass
Soar with your wings while
     you still can fly.
Taste every fleeting second
Bloom towards the infinite sky.

Rose-scented smoke & dreamy aromas of poetry

I yearn to
fall asleep to
the rose-scented
burning-pink smoke
and dreamy aromas
of soul-poetry,
so that I wake to
a poem-tinted dawn
and morning's sweet fragrance
lays out my new day's path
in flowers of purpose and joy.
