Hint Of Scent. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Somewhere, in memory's breeze
I catch your scent.
Drifting through dreams it teases.
............. and
Alerts senses

Awakes me anew to hopes
Of your return.
I hear past laughter, evoked
.................. by
My heart, yearning.

Subtly it spreads itself round.
Essence of scents
Recall you clearly, surround
..............me
So pleasantly.

Once, months ago, you were here.
Where are you now?
Sensing scent of me, can my
.............. tears
Reach you somehow?

    Fay, You compose musical notes with your words.

    Sweet and sour memories of the past,
    Open the flood gates of senses fast.
    With them the scent of happiness bring,
    But finally in them the staleness stink.

    Our senses are but triggers, the keys that unlock the mind
    memories stored are selected, its there they are confined
    a song, a place, a glance a smell, replay a memory of the past
    then its stored away again, as new ones are amassed
    lovely theme Fay (Report) Reply

    Oh Fay...I can feel the emotion in these words..Isn't it funny how a small thing like an object or smell puts you back in a place where memories are now spent...10++
