Where do dreams go
        when held like a treasure
To memories
         and linger years ever

Rich and warmingly sweet dough
spiced with cinnamon
wisps of nutmeg, buttery
rolls baked gold-and-brown
Icing sugar made

Twenty-fourth Epulaeryu! ^-^
My sweet tooth returns with a vengeance! ;)
Another classic that never lets me down!

How tenderness lives in those gifted hands
that flutter, making keys of ebony and
ivory sing.

Currently listening to 'River Flows in You' by Yiruma.
A wonderful and timeless piano piece!

Falling, and falling, as I always have,
I will consider a final line,
The essence of my life will search,
In the last moments I have left,
That maybe I found the words,
To describe the infinite,
Until then,

and when all spirals down to naught
shall you endure

This is a portrait, painted in words, of an ecstatic vision that came to me in the clarity found deep in the trance of meditation.
It is a complete mystery to me with regard to its significance, but perhaps to the one(s) that need to know, it will be a revealing.
The words came forth effortlessly, almost prayer-like, as I reflected on the vision in its aftermath, not long after the meditation that birthed it.
I move
through gently opening embraces
and find myself
firmly enveloped in your luscious warmth
that urges me to push on further
until we reach the moment
  out of time and space
that holds us close
forever and again
in a world of brilliant galaxies
in deep space

They're a frozen sun;  a
light that lives in
Ever looked at someone's photo and felt their light, even though they are gone?
