Sweet

We reach higher altitudes
by braving steeper cliffs
and scratch at what a rose concludes
when taking deeper whiffs,

we fathom what the sea conceals
if harboring a need
to feel the waves caress our keels
while striving to be freed,

and we comprehend humility
by owning our mistake
or tasting how good life can be
surprised by flaming cake.
