Day 19: Synesthesia – Synesthesia is defined as “the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.” Which of the five senses do you feel most strongly influences your creative mind? Many synesthetics describe being able to “taste” colors–imagine for a moment your wires are crossed and one sense is activating another. Write a poem about it.
Candy-colored blooming brilliance,
yellows, oranges, pinks and purples
line the streets in gray cement pots as far as my eyes can see.
Before I even cross over
to feast my eyes upon them close
and fully taken in all their beauty,
their sweet heady fragrance fills my nose,
a haunting of springs past.
