Relative Senses

A Poem By LoriAnn // 1/24/2009

What scent is that of rose?
How do you know, that, when you smell rose,
I, perhaps, don’t smell that, but…
Orange?
How do you taste sweet?
Is it possible that sweet to you,
Is salt, or even bitter to me,
But we react to, say, ice cream,
The same way?
Are perhaps, taste and scent
And sight and touch
Relative? Like time or gravity?
Maybe – perchance, white and light
Are blue and deep
To you.
Now, I ask you my friend,
What color is the sky?

Maybe somewhere there's a place where colors have a flavor, and red would taste something like lemon and cherries, with a bit of kiwi. Just thinking a few random thoughts.
