Nostalgia


I remember those

Rainy September afternoons when

Wind brought you in

Like a whisper, lingering

In candied gasps

All enveloping.

 

Apple pie baking,

Spicy golden fragrance, reminiscent

Of tinsel and Christmas

Decorations, first

And foremost, tasted with nose

And then by tongue.

 

 And you

Bringing in, an armful of smiles

Staggering with the weight

Of joy.

 

Rain

Beating down on the windows then

Ceasing

Like the calming heartbeat

After a happy run in the sun.

 

You

A shining warmth, a

Sprinkling of sugar,

Caramelized

On a freshly baked bun.  

 

Dilly-dallying leaves floating

Earthwards, frolicking

In the tempest, evoked

By the muffled rain

Smell of fresh wood, wafting

Drifting, circling

In a note of music, each word uttered

Turning into luscious persistent

Poetry.

 

Sweet tea made with just

The right amount of love, warming

From the inside and you

Taking over, my soul

And my mind and I

Smiling at the thought, feeling silly

Yet warm, from the glow

Of your beatifying love.
