after flames
stories glow in the sand
spirits gather

  2. SMiLes.. mY friEnd Xenia
    reMinds me afTer a lingering
    Cold of the Virus kind as wHat Can
    Happen it DamAged the Sensing
    of Smell and resulting Rich
    of Taste..
    what was once
    BeYoND iNiFiNiTE
    in Taste is
    to sweet and
    sour and bitter and
    salty and sure as ‘they’
    Also nAMe for Delicious too..
    Funny thing is.. i often forgot to
    eat before i lost that Rich Taste at Home
    as the Taste of Food is not all that Feeds..
    Interestingly what might devastate some
    folks is just a passing experience as sure
    eventuAlly i WiLL be able to taste rich again..
    MoRE When thE Sensory Nerves ReGeNeRaTE..
    than ever
    little to
    no smell of what
    is Beauty more with poor taste
    wHeRe AsHeS Don’T SMeLL..:)
