Poetry: “Sensory Walk”

A poem born on the subway ride home from work one day.


Sensory Walk


I saw movement in my eye,

Just beyond where I could see.

It streaked across the inky ground,

And glimmered faintly in the light.


I heard a noise beyond the trees,

In the dark where leaves lay still.

It crackled slightly in the gloom,

And mingled with the chilly wind.


I felt a fragrance when I was out,

Walking in that forest dark.

It smelled of summer, warm and dry,

And of summers still to come.


I tasted rain upon my tongue,

As I made my way back home.

It tasted tinny and of hope,

Of magic just beyond our world.
