    Cover your eyes and read…
    Read the words painted in
    The darkness of the one place
    You can find true comfort;

    Cover your ears and listen…
    Listen to the melodies of the
    Songs that play in caverns
    Between sound and deaf;

    Cover your nose and smell
    Smell the sweetest scents
    Of life surrounding you as
    You acknowledge desire;

    Cover your mouth and taste…
    Taste the delicacies of the day
    That creep in through other
    Senses to a place of fulfillment;

    Now…cover your heart and live
    Live as one who knows what he
    Sees could be heard through the
    Smell of sweet tasting eternal joy.

    Close your eyes and…reflect.
