Exploring Senses

Allegory of the Five Senses by Pietro Paolini

Let me see your face, softly tracing each & every line
Let me hear your songs,  words & melody intertwined
Let me touch your heart, beating to the rhythm of mine
Let me taste your lips, ripe wine passion unrefined
Let me smell your soft scent  for you my flesh pines
Let me sense your spirit, enlightenment/state of mind

Author's note:  I have added the sixth sense as
I believe it is a great gift...

  1. sensing someone's spirit goes def. beyond the lips, song, scent...it's about seeing...and knowing...

  2. Being able to see within
    Sure goes to a whole new plain at ones bin
    But all the touching and sensing too
    I can do with that at my zoo

  6. I agree about the sixth sense, Truedessa. It is indeed a REAL sense and integral to understanding so many things in a deep way.

  7. I loved your poem, Trudessa. So brief, but so rich! I think we have a number of senses beyond 5, and spirit is absolutely an important one. I am unfamiliar with Pietro Paolini as an artist, but he is a visual delight! Take care!

  11. Sometimes we take these senses for granted and they are the essence of our existence.

  12. Perfectly expressive in exploring all the senses with brevity. The 6th sense is def could be a great gift & i am afraid i don't have it but i have extended ears to hear those beyond the boundaries. Smiles.

  13. "Passion unrefined . . ." I like that. Sometimes I wonder if perhaps I could buy it in a bottle. I sure could do with a bit of passion. I've been a blue zombie for a long time or so it feels. So tell me, is there such a bottle? Thanks for the email. I thought I'd drop in a line instead. I can see the Blogger Board is still there. You may have to change the link, though, if you're still interested. In the meantime, I hope you're doing fine. Now, where's that ripe wine?

    1. Welcome back Blue..glad to see you are feeling better..Well, if one could bottle passion I imagine they would be very wealthy..perhaps, passion is internally bottled and just needs to
      be uncorked.

      I left the blogger board even when you closed shop...I don't think I'll ever get to Bora Bora but, it is fun to entertain the thought.

    2. You left the Blogger Board even when I closed shop... That means a lot to me, Truedessa, and it tells me all I need to know about you. :) It's just...it was getting more and more difficult for me to keep my eyes open without totally freaking out. I said to myself, 'What's the use? I can't read a single thing.' So I pulled the plug. Even the docs were getting pretty desperate. But now, after a lot of research and experimenting, I can see quite well again. I'm not complaining.

      Passion in a bottle... That would be something. What would you call it? Of course you will get to Bora Bora. Just put your mind to it and you can do anything you want.
