CELEBRATION OF SENSES ...

Auditory Instinct ...
Savior of sightless sense, to hear melodic reflex;
Our ears primed for symphony and song;
Bells chiming in far distance towers;
Stream's calm trickles down narrows of long;
Strings in unison with voice and percussion;
Think of these as your own to care;
Think of these as your own to share.

Aromatic Waves ...
Scented memories linger longest;
Without its talents, taste be gone;
Spray of ocean on curled surf's break;
Warm baked bread on oven top to set;
Newborn's breath, come home at last;
Think of these as your own to care;
Think of these as your own to share.

Epicurean's Elixir ...
Life's finest found in wine and feast;
Save shelter, basic to every soul's need;
Thanksgiving's bounty all should receive;
Spring water, some lips will never touch;
May fruit of our lives be ever so sweet;
Think of these as your own to care;
Think of these as your own to share.

Sensitive Skin ...
Pleasure and pain, relatives not too distant;
Yet extreme of one, becomes absence of the other;
Lamb's wool to feel, heavenly soft;
Flame holds us captive 'til the burn;
Love's result, never forgotten once had;
Think of these as your own to care;
Think of these as your own to share.

Image Complete ...
Vivid in dreams and in day's wake;
Entrance and exit for our souls;
Peering deep into dark skies at night;
Lover's gaze becomes impressions for life;
From mountain top, to scope out over the world;
Think of these as your own to care;
Think of these as your own to share.

Existence of the 6th ...
When do we give thanks for the least of these;
For without, we may not miss, but for granted we take;
Extra sensory perceptions, long thought the 6th;
Grounded in simplicity, other possibilities exist;
Be aware and celebrate senses one through five;
Our devotion to these, incomplete in our lives.

WOW---must be the season for the poetry olympics.  You are no doubt the one carrying our flag in the parade are you not.  I agree with Sudhir....you have really raised the bar a few notches with this one.
