Feeling high

A smoke ring
In between the pole star
It looks like her
No, its definitely her, my love
The old monk sips in
I feel happy
Ecstatic to be exact
I think I can touch her
Feel her presence
The smoke ring vanishes
She's still there
Surrounded by her competitors
Jealous they are of her beauty
I feel proud
Admiring her I take another sip
The smoke appears again
This time it blurs my vision
I can still see her
Dazzled by her brightness
I take in the holy water again

For One Shot Wednesday - Week 22 at One Stop Poetry.

Brilliant write, especially when you mention pole star and then express a case of mistaken identity.
