The Other Side

Blue haze cocoons 
the pastel path I stroll. 
My cushioned footsteps 
almost float forward,
drawn toward the portal
that beckons me to cross through
to the other side.

Lavender air
seeps into my lungs
slowing my limbs.

I hesitate at the gate.

"Not quite seduced", good observation, badger.

I liked the "lavender air" not merely "lavender scented air".
