How do I describe the smell of today?
Like roots gestating, releasing their fragrance for new plantings
It’s heady scent fills me with memories of early days in Los Angeles when
Life was music,
Youth was expendable, and
Early morning dew told me I was immortal
Now in my patio, through the eyes of a speckled history
I breathe the raw air
Deep into me,
Grafting its gift onto a new birthing.
A new symphony is coming.
