Feeling It

It rained earlier.
I went outside to put my feet in puddles.
Not to slosh about, just to stand in them.
I wanted to feel the earth on the soles of my feet and water between my toes.
I needed to feel grounded, and to escape my four walls.
Feeling earth and water brought on intense pleasure
and unleashed a swarm of butterflies vibrating everywhere.
I danced in the rain grinning until it was too much.

A full moon casting blue light on a quiet city street,
Playing with trees and blades of grass can reduce me
to a puddle of emotions and raw, unbearably sharp sensations.
The feeling in my chest is intense, like desire perhaps,
and I cannot endure it for long; I retreat to the safety of my mind.

I come undone when sensations wash over me,
creating emotions bigger than my heart.
Sometimes Beauty brings me to the choking point.

    Backstroke in moonlight
    What a delight!
    Angels in the snow
    I’m in the flow,
    Riding the joy. 🙂

  2. AnElephantCant agree with you more
    Puddles are among life’s greatest delights
    Like lying in snow
    Trunk and toes all aglow
    Or swimming in the ocean at night
