rain in the forest

sharp, shrill sweetness
lingering like perfume
saturating the heavy air
with saturated ground
dark hues beneath light
colors, making bright
the dull and subdued
with depths of imbibery
inviting you to sink too
to step a little harder
and walk a little slower
as your senses melt in
tasting the moisture
with every open mouth
breath, drinking down all
these precious pauses
time ceasing to persist
holding so effortless
like dialating to ingest
instead of consuming
your skin prickles at
the freshness of wet
not cold but not warm
a place in between its
listening to the sounds
of nothing to get to
humming the melodies
of forgotten temples
this is your Temperance
this place of abandonment
and the new life unfolding
finding this balance within

Certainly more about what I’m learning to come…
