    I carry a ghost defined by memories
    intangible reflections of tangible moments
    that speed past so fast
    my head spins in all directions at once

    my body reels and shudders from a chill
    that is so warm the sun itself feels
    like ice...and I burn slowly
    like kerosene pulled through
    the wick of a lamp

    flickering on an old mahogany table
    in the center of space
    with spheres of recollection
    revolving in collapsing orbits
    around me

    and I pause to consider
    a particular moment
    that pulsates like a newly born star
    within my menagerie of thought
    and the unforgettable bliss of
    remember when

    our lips charted tongues of flame
    and we became our own language
    deciphered through touch
    spoken in frenchkiss vernacular
    that gave us both a headrush
    so spectacular we fell out of ourselves
    and into each other and out of sync

    with the there and then
    which was the here and now
    of the moment when we held
    the world together and tasted the sea
    churning behind our lips

    Now this is...

    so uniquely different. Visuals are on every line. You paint so well. I have not had the pleasure of welcoming you. Obviously, you have more jewels here somewhere. I love to go back, so I am sure I will run across some mo of yo beautiful work.

    Loving your style and perception...Joyce

    <appears suddenly>

    Thank you Joyce for the read and the compliments. You speak as if you have not read any of my work before. Considering the fact that I don't float through here often, I understand if you have forgotten me.

    Epiphany, thanks for the read. Glad you consider my jumble of words to be beautiful.

    Rich, so you enjoyed my other worldly painting of an ordinary moment?

    Cocobutterskyn, thanks for the read and the compliment. Glad you enjoyed it. But no this wasn't my "oops". I'll let you know when I post that one.

    Thanks again for the readings and responses. It is truly an inspiration.

    I submerged my mental into the warm depths of this piece in its entirety the requisite 7 times in order to receive my healing...

    My change came when my third eye glimpsed a reflection of a time I won't soon forget:

    "...and I pause to consider
    a particular moment
    that pulsates like a newly born star
    within my menagerie of thought
    and the unforgettable bliss of
    remember when

    our lips charted tongues of flame
    and we became our own language
    deciphered through touch
    spoken in frenchkiss vernacular
    that gave us both a headrush
    so spectacular we fell out of ourselves
    and into each other and out of sync..."


    My change came, all over again.

    Thank you for speaking words that pierce the soul and causes the heart to remember!

    ...>floats in>

    Alyce, if my poem brought back memories for U, then I am honored and humbled. I was writing of a moment within many moments, one that is unforgettable and fresh. One that isn't bound by the constraints of time and place. A moment that is a world all to itself.

    Thank U so very much for the read and the response. U inspire me.

    <floats out<...
