The sugar in coffee beans

“a promise of summer”

The honey in wine

“notes of spring”

On taste buds budding lilacs

the fragrance of sweet yearning

 

Fresh soft morning dew 

In the mist a foggy figure

Warm rays of sunshine

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
