"Aroma" | by Photography by Sharon Farrell
Back to group


There is longing arising in my throat

Like a song floating on a flat-bottomed boat

Curving along the canals of Vienna


Princess Xanat, reclines like white orchids

In her lover’s sweet embrace,

melting away in velvet darkness


To the reddish gold and caramel

Overtones of sunrise and sunset

Love lift our cups to be filled


We share in the dark vigor of coffee

Cherries pressed against lips

Somewhere in Asia, Africa, Arabia careful


Hands choose the espresso that marks

More than the barren lands

Where love buried her treasure


And bid it grow, climb like a vine

Towards the heavenly sky

Where mortals become fine


My tongue with pleasure

In rivulet steams

With molten gold, I become the bee


Mesmerized by the purple tones of

The jacaranda flower

Flowing inside her.


The basket weave of caramel

Is full of promise

my thirsting lips


open with desire.
