Slow Burn

eased from a simmer

to the warmth

of the back burner

my roiling bubbling

hushed to a soft murmur

coalesce of spiced essence

in a fragrance of the flagrant

the fold and the turn

of the taste and the yearn

the exquisite duration

of a slow burn

The sensual nature of life is not to be avoided but to be appreciated. Gratitude is a gift granted to the Giver.
