(PAD #017) a message

the reminder comes
in a message
from the roses

the scent
is a transportation
to other times

other places

an olfactory shape
that is a ghost
of the senses

an absence
in the mind

  1. I agree. I think smells are one of the strongest reminders of the past there is. So powerful. Lovely poem, Frank, and I don’t think I’ve seen one about scents as reminders before.
