condensing

by Manas Moksha

Drop
by
Drop
increasing in density
a vice of humidity
falls heavy through air
birthing condensation

visible droplets emerge into light
magnifying matter
solids and liquids separate
their identity inflated

a silken blanket
peeling off the surface
in all directions

compressable fluid
together
embraced

vibrational
rotational
translational
in motion

slowly
the scent
of something potent
a vacuum of inhalation
each nostril takes
pleasure

olfactory notes
on top of another
pine and winter cedar
filling the heart hues
sinking
a nutty rouge
a tickle of jasmine and lemongrass
at the base
lightly spiced pipe tobacco
sitting in a concentrated
bed of charcoal

gaseous
a mist of molecules
slowly
in motion

a liquid
traveling
into ambient temperatures
beyond a breath
of bitterness

sweetness emerges
a kinetic
frequency of solemnity

Appears to be by and large about kinetic energy in various forms. Sensuous.
