how forgiveness feels:
like the game starts over
and this time I won’t keep score
how forgiveness looks:
a stoplight turns from red to green
I walk into the room and look them in the eye
I lean in when she whispers
how forgiveness tastes:
a warm tomato from the garden
mint or lemon tea
how forgiveness smells:
a clean house
wholewheat bread baking in the oven
how forgiveness sounds:
“I was wrong”
like a song

Yes, forgiveness effects all our senses.
Thank you for unwrapping it with such beautiful words.
So well said.
