Touch Me First

which faculty could have
God given the man first?
it must have been the
sense of touch, that
divine touch which
awakened a being
which soon developed
the burning desire
to see the creator
sound took over
to give the human
that third dimension
to make his way around
it could have stopped just there
till perhaps the Almighty
spread out his graces
with flowers - scents -
hiding within each
the taste of paradise

the universe spins
to unveil more senses
in the man, so that
he can look back to
old old days as days
he lived in other realms
