cellar door

for kb…

cellar door…

is luminance in a mundane frame,
effervescent chardonnay in a kitchen glass;

it levels in my mind…
a morning  pine smoked forest…

cellar door…

wafts petrichor of a dry earth after rain
or vellichor of old must books in a sunlit store

is limerence…not quite a blushing love
first beating to a fussing drum

more contained…a crimson velvet rose
pressed in a manuscript…bound to fragility

cellar door…

floats bowed sostenuto in a Mozart score
is exquisite…an incense fused chant
