Be the change you want to see in this world-Gandhi

She is the bakery of life.
I smell the sweet aroma of her every word.
Each word caresses my body in a warm embrace,
just as the scent of freshly baked donuts tingle my nose.
I listen to the music of her soul-
you can’t get closer to her than through her heartbeat.
I feel the silky frosting of her educated mind;
Smooth, clean, welcoming
A rainbow of images stir through my head when I am with her.
I taste the flavor of her knowledge
Sweet, tangy, savory
I wish to savor every moment,
Indulge in every bite of experience,
Perpetually engulfed in her,
I long to live forever in my bakery.
