Ode to Smooth

A Tribute to Life's Simple Pleasures

By Edison AdePublished 3 months ago 1 min read
illustration inspired by the poem "Ode to Smooth"

Smooth evades edges,

slips past friction,

glides effortless

like a swan on water.

Smooth is a shortcut through chaos,

a wormhole through wrinkles in time.

It slaloms down bumps,

makes molehills out of mountains.

Smooth transcends touch.

It is a symphony for the senses -

the satisfaction of a perfectly spherical raindrop,

the warmth of aged whiskey.

Smooth is the dreamscape,

where logic loosens its grip

and imagination dances freely.

It is the fluidity of ideas,

skating across the slippery surface of the subconscious.

In smoothness we find meaning

eroding the jagged shards of life

into polished stones of wisdom.

Smooth sees suffering for what it is

momentary friction on the path to peace.

Smooth invites surrender

let go of control,

flow like water.

Smooth is freedom.
