I draw forth the sweetest nectar
with simple breath,
the bellows for invoking sensation,
as if the very inhalation of its offering
coaxes the universe to blossom
more deeply before me.
upon bearing witness
I am the blooming:
petals gently curl,
peel back layer by layer,
reveal the sticky, potent essence

does the act of savoring
invite sweetness?
