AWAKEN, INHALE, INGEST

Why can’t we see sweetness and smell fuschia?

Feel crimson and taste ultramarine?

Hear sorrow and see softness?

Smell happy and hear bitter?

Why can’t we touch brightness?

Hear wet earth?

See the salt in the ocean?

Smell the sweetness in honey?

Taste blindness?

Or listen to a rainbow?

What if we could?

What if sublime consciousness

Or rampant, intoxicated imagination

Could enable and elevate the senses to transcend
beyond nuance to a new dimension?

      1. LOL. It depends what you exactly mean by the “Substance” 😀

        You are never too old to try though, just sayin’ 😀 Not the heavy stuff 😛 But obliviously it’s not a solution, maybe a good way to ignore and avoid but eventually your problems catch up with you no matter how much you run away from them 🙂

  1. Oooh. I love this poem. Have you heard of synesthesia? It’s a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to an involuntary experience in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. So numbers may be experienced as colors, colors experienced as sounds. It’s considered an aberration, but perhaps its a step closer to enlightenment. 🙂

    1. No, I haven’t at all, to be honest. But that’s so fascinating, I will google it up later tonight. Thanks for this! And like I emntioned to Zee in one of my earlier comments, we all know of “substances” that can also enahnce your senses!!! 😉
      Thank you, again!

  2. What if all of this actually happens and we just haven’t reached there yet? What if we haven’t expounded our strengths (and I don’t mean physical, but mental strength) to the maximus?
