Imagination, Dreaming



Only in my imagination
do I dwell here

contemplating beauty

forgotten senses rise within me,
ancient, from other days,

The scents of tropical forests
poignant and steamy;

The path beckons me forward
to walk
beneath the towering canopy

 spaces alive with birdsong

 the rustling of primates 
in the trees

exquisite flowers
blooming


Costa Rica you are calling to me
wouldst that I could answer

  3. It certainly does look very enticing! And I like the little hint that you may have dwelt in the tropics in "ancient" days (in a different body, no doubt).
