Nourish My Soul
Thought, Dream, and Memory
So many things that nourish me from all the threads of my life
Thought, dream, and memory twining, dancing like candle flames
Daydreams about what could be and making it real.
Finding small joys in each and every single day.
The tumbling dance of the passing clouds.
A strawberry ice cream cone on a green grass hill.
Letting a balloon fly with a wish on a string.
A kiss goodnight from a memory.
Glorious gardens of flowers and the velvet of a rose.
Seeing hummingbirds and butterflies passing by.
Shamisen songs quietly played while sipping some tea.
Koi like gliding flames swimming by.
Smelling the chaparral after a monsoon rain.
A soft blanket's embrace on a winter night.
The sun's touch on an ocean shore.
The seagulls with their cry and the waves on my feet.
Being crazy in love and feeling like I can fly.
Arms wrapped around me, feeling safe and warm.
Floating in a pool at night, with palm trees and stars above.
Cuddling together, waiting for the day to start.
