Favorite Quote:
"Things aren't accomplished through patience, but through intuition and persistence." - Danny Southard


The taste of the present
flavors the remnants of the past;
Pieces together memories of bitter and pleasant taste.
Memories long forgotten come rushing back
with the inhalation of decadent and toxic fumes.
A wavering, lingering aroma ignites my mind
into a flickering film of translucent pictures
sewn together by a sense.
Waves of emotion indulge me in my past,
moments that seemed only to be puddles.
Those puddles now drench me.


The author's comments:
The realization of the cerebral link between senses and memory inspired me to converge my thoughts and emotions and convert them into words.
