Warm Gentle Breeze

Warm Gentle Breeze

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Warm Gentle Breeze
not warm like muffins
fresh from the steaming oven
tanned, domed caps
more as an infant's breath; close
as taste.
not gentle like downy feathers, nor
mother's soft skin touch, nor as
aubergine dew drops leave traces; but
more as memories conjure dreams un-
awakened and smiling bubbles from the well.
breezes not like those first in Spring from
the south; nor those rare in late Fall 
sixty degrees and lemon chiffon
but like in facing sightless
weight is lifted from shoulders; tension from necks
melting directly into a 
warm gentle breeze

oh gosh I know that breeze ... its like the closing your eyes and feeling the universe kiss your cheeks ... I love that moment of melting between me and the rest of reality ... You know when I was in Kyoto, Japan, I was in a Zen temple with a friend of mine and unusually this Zen temple which is usually very busy was momentarily quiet. I sat on the wooden verandah looking out onto the famous zen garden and closed my eyes and that breeze you talk of above, well that's what I felt as time stood still and I gathered up all of my senses to keep that tiny moment with me forever ... ahh ... and wen I close my eyes right now, it's there and it holds that little piece of magic that connects us all.

Thank you for taking me back there ... X

Hello, Einstein! :)
This is a lovely description. My favorite are the first brisk breezes of fall. They bring back memories from childhood.

Affirmative! You're very welcome! :)
A very vivid description. Beautiful. Particularly hard for me to imagine as I sit in my chilly brick home circa 1870 -- the temperature outside is minus 18 Celsius. Not sure what that is in F without looking it up.

Sigh, this is truly gorgeous. The elegance here in the detail is sensational E. That breeze that slowly dissolves the weight of the world in such a way it is nothing more than a gentle exhalation that pauses you just long enough to think you know what? Things are ok...more than ok :) This is so beautifully written :)

All the examples you give us are delectable tidbits of life. To feel a breeze kiss my cheek is to taste that muffin, touch that baby's cheek, and feel my mother's touch again....oh, if only. To know you are in the right place at the right time and all is right with the world. A breath of fresh air. Wonderfully uplifting. The artwork is beautiful. lydi**

This piece has an ethereal feel to it. I like how your descriptions melt into one another and capture how it feels to transcend the earth ... it's a feeling that goes beyond ordinary pleasure. This reminded me of Edgar Poe's saying that "Beauty is the province of every poem." The artwork was enthralling too.
