Memory Triggers.....

Powerfully evoked memories

brought through the conduit of smell;

fresh stock flowering in a narrow earth bed

suddenly I am a child again and I can tell

you exactly whose garden it was long ago.


Sweet peas flowering in rich vibrant hues,

bumblebees buzzing from flower to flower

transports me back to a garden of significance

every time I smell these lovely timeless blooms,

for they are etched forever through their scent.


Thus the power of smells and scents remain

long after the event, long after we even can recall

those times and places that left their mark,

unseen and forgotten until inhaled once again,

these fragrant reminders of yesteryear.....
