Absorbent

Posted: April 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

To notice everything,

you must be as absorbent as a sponge.

You must taste the sun,

It tastes light purple infused with swirls of scorching hot yellow,

as it lays its rays across your face

You must hear the Sky,

as the clouds and the wind and the atmosphere

call your name.

You must embrace the Earth,

wiggling your toes and uprooting fresh healthy dirt.

And you must smell the water,

The fresh saltiness rising off the top and the sour smell of drifting sea weed

Lastly, you must watch the fire,

watch its tendrils eating away at the fiery logs it is based up

watch the smoke it realeases rise slowly up into the heavens

until you can see it no more.

In order to understand all of this,

you must be as absorbent as a sponge
