An ordinary world of light,
A luminescent line in time,
I’d walk along and breathe along,
And perhaps forget to look and know.
Forget to hear the questions posed,
Forget to smell the basil plants,
Forget my time perhaps would end:
So sad I’d leave those things unsaid.
Around that pot pasts might adhere.
All through the room of light so strong,
A trace was strong, a life was long,
An ordinary world was lost.
The basil scent would linger here,
You’d sense my echoes through your fear.
