Festivals and Life Righting itself~

Aromatic
wafts
Held captive…
Between teeth
of
Heart’s
Cockles
Got jolted
Today~

I’ve always
Considered
None superior
To your
Wrist flicks
Flavorfully
Speaking~

Your dishes
Had that extra
Something
None could
Replicate~

Pure
Limpid love
Enhancing
Every dished
Tit bit! ~

Self pity
to the brim today,
I caught myself short
At the upswing
of maudlin
teetering
At the brink
Of being sucked
In~

A familiar
Whiff knocked
my nine pins
and things
Finally
fell
in place ~

You’ve
been gone
Decades, still
you linger,
Never abandoning
your youngest~

When I see
a clear impassive
Face, I see you~
when a child
Sidles up to me
trustingly
We are as one~

Temples, monks
Holy chants
panhandlers
Conjure your
Dear face~

I see you everywhere
Feel the heat of your love
and I quickly hug myself~

You reside within
And what my senses
Experience, is you
Speaking to me
Plain and
Simple~

I’ll now go stand
In the light
Where
I belong
As you
Placed
Me there
Before
You left~
~
