My Muse

Feb 25, 2006

How do I know you are with me?

The same way I know
There are flowers in the room
Before I ever see them
The same way I enjoy a cool breeze on my face
By closing my eyes

Your scent is as familiar to me
As evergreen at Christmas
Or fresh mown grass on a warm summer’s day
Your essence aerates in my throat
As would coriander and ginger, with a hint of musk

You come to me on my breath
And fill my senses with your presence
You come into my blood
And flow through my heart like molten light

How do I know you are with me?
I know just as surely as I know I am alive!
