A Ten Minute Break From The Present.


Ten Minute Break From The Present.

  © -MFB III 


If we could pick

a handful of all

of our most

favorite loves,
carefully selected

from the essence

of our lives,
their sweet aromas

lingering in each

gently clutched palm.
Then eagerly grind them

in a way much like

flesh was ground

in passion.
Steeping them

in the heated tears

of yesterdays

filters stained,
letting them drip

back into the fragile

glass vessel 

of our soul,
warm and vibrant

bringing a re-awakening

of all we've missed.
What a wondrous

cuppa joy that would

make to sip in

the wee hours,
what a brew-haha

that would be.
