Synesthesia

Pablo Picasso. Music painting

“Why do two colors,
Put one next to the other
Sing?...”
P. Picasso


                        1.
I speeding up every time
Nearby the Hwy 169
A coffee shop.

                   2.
I swiftly sink
In the flowerbed
Such a fresh aroma.

                   3.
His eyes caught the smell
The particles of burnt out maple leaves
Landed on the asphalt.

                   4.
I saw your breath
Sahara warmth
My shoulders loose.

                   5.
Radiant aura
Around treetop on the hill
When she spoke.

                   6.
Heavy steps on the stairs
In her heart chamber
Still knight approaching.

  1. That is an excellent question from Picasso! I like thinking of sinking in a flowerbed and catching fresh scents, and I hope she gets her knight!

  10. Gosh. So much breath and scent! Beautiful. The one that made me gasp:
    "His eyes caught the smell
    The particles of burnt out maple leaves
    Landed on the asphalt."
