Ocean of Senses

2 of 3 in the Jemverse ‘Ocean’ trilogy

Sensory perception
a fragrance on the breeze
Carried in the air across
the wild and raging seas
Heard and felt and witnessed
in my blood and in my bones
Appealing to my senses
and a love I’ve always known

The Ocean’s voice before me
like music to my ears
A symphony of pleasure
as it’s been across the years

Jasmine

Spend an evening in my garden
and I can guarantee you this
You’ll never want to leave again
for the fragrance here is bliss

The Jasmine flowering with the sun
fills the air with heaven
and overpowers your senses
at any time past seven

It really is quite wonderful
this pleasure in the air
Just standing still and breathing in
you’re captivated there.

A life worth living

I might see a roaring wave
or a flower on the breeze
or a smile as something happens
or something brings me to my knees

I might feel a mountain
or a feather floating by
I might spill a thousand tears
as their beauty makes me cry

I might feel like shouting
or whispering a while
or simply want to say something
that would conjure up a smile

I might hear some music
that sends a shiver down my spine
or smell the scent of lavender
or some other fragrance fine

I might see and hear and taste
Senses in overdrive
All just daily facets of what
it means to be alive
