Flowers From A Friend

I submerge into
the sweetness and solace
of scent and colors

Like Walking To School Through The Blossoming Orange Grove

a scent so
delicate and delectable
it transports me back to childhood


hot chocolate
on a cool morning
scented dahlia

Memory’s Fragrance

September bloom
slight spice of fall
all the past recalled

Sacred Emily

petals poised
in perfection
transcended by
her scent sublime

Chieftan Trees

The sweetest of woods
pine’s scent releases burdens from heads and hearts
and so they are known as the Keepers of Peace.
