With All My Senses

With All My Senses

A Poem by sivan

Every so often
I catch the stench of last night's beer
on a passing stranger
and then I can smell you 
on my skin again.
Every so often
A berg wind through the window
blankets me in its soft, warm comfort
and then I can feel you
in my arms again.
Every so often
I hear the beating of drums through the walls
of a run down reggae joint
and then I can hear you
calling my name again.
Every so often
I bite unconsciously into your favourite snack
and savor it's familiar flavour
and then I can taste you
on my lips again.
Every so often
I stumble over my feet 
in the rush to outrun my own mind
and then I can see you
as if you were standing before me again
Every so often,
with all of my senses,
I am reminded of you again.

'Every so often, ~ with all of my senses, ~ I am reminded of you again.' That's a more than subtle summing up of a great total.

A wonderfully phrased memory of time past; seems you've covered so many happenings with both a sadness and gratitude. Fine writing.

you are welcome.
Very well crafted. Our senses do trigger recollections. It really does work like that. You captured that so nicely and I enjoyed it a lot. Thanx...bob
