Can you hear it?
Heavier than light, lighter than air;
It kisses the water, rippling its surface.
Carried by the wind, its highest notes bounce off the edges of the heavens
Coming back to us in
Can you feel it?
It speads over your body like warmth.
Dappled sunlight that lingers on your lips,
Inching its way toward your tired heart,
Can you taste it?
Sometimes salty, always sweet.
It hangs in the air afterwards, a breath of its former self.
Leaving a longing on your tongue,
That can be traced to your fingertips
Can you smell it?
It's fresher than fresh, huskier than husk.
It fills your lungs,
Can you see it?
(Even the blind can see this.)
It's everywhere, everything.
It's timeless, it's age-old.
It's colours that swim, their consistencies mixed,
