the feast
© 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

not unlike the stomach
the eyes hunger too
landscapes can grow stale
and eyes can long to savor sights that are
mouth watering

there is something so filling about gazing
on the color green
each blink capturing a morsel
of the luscious light
light rich with potential and life
the essence of regenerated matter revived
broken down into parts that can nurture the new

green like this banana tree grove stretched out before me
green like the 3rd stripe of his rasta bracelet
green like the belly of that iguana skimming the side of the road

green grass green
reaching for the afternoon sun
and turning it into fuel
bended light spectrums
rare jewels or common leaves

and when I have had my fill
and this deliciously rich landscape fades into my past
the memory does not linger on the tip of my tongue
but in the mind’s eye
where it grows
and glows on
