I think of all the textures in the world and wonder if we truly feel them…experience them…appreciate them.

The scratch of wool against the skin.

The bark of a tree.

The surface of a smooth stone.

The liquid-like granular feel of sand through the fingers or its annoying grate between the toes.

The skin of an orange.

The underside of a leaf.

A baby’s hair.

Crisp clean sheets.

The nape of a neck.

Crumbled crackers.

The petals of a flower.



Blades of grass.

Weathered wood.

How many things we touch without ever really feeling them.

I close my eyes and imagine these things.
