Scent from the Past

Waft of familiar aroma

Attached to a depart one

Slips into real time


Senses heightened

Thrown into a vacuum

Surrounding noise disappears


Empathic connection

Baring myself

To flame of emotion


Miss you…

    I love the sense I get of the simplicity in a moment of missing, the essence of it. How the experience of missing fills all aspects of the moment. The tenderness and beauty of that moment.

      Thank-you for the thoughtful comment, Arati. Yes, that moment of missing came after the physical manifestation of what I believe to be a sudden connection with another aspect of “reality”. It’s happened a few times through the years at the most unexpected moments. 🙂

    A lovely poem (and image) – those moments of memory triggered by an aroma, a smell – can be quite powerful. Stops me in my tracks.

    How beautifully moving, Olga. I have this sensation with my paternal grandmother every time I smell roses – her distinct scent.
