The Taste of Tangerines


When a person is in love

all senses achieve heightened awareness

the wind whispers the wisdom of sages

the continuum of color is witnessed

with the naked eye

warm currents of once raging rivers


kiss the skin and saturate every pore

each strand of golden lock

dances with streaks of grey

it creates a bouquet

in fertile ground

mind as water

where is your shore?

Is it you who can tell the difference

when blindfolded

between the blood red orange

and the taste of tangerines?
