Gentle Fragrance (poem)

A gentle fragrance flowing in the wind

A song familiar from some long ago

Some shadow lovers’ hearts once use to know

This memory refusing to rescind


It flowed across soft moments brought alive

When dreams escaped these flowers sound asleep

To form the kisses fantasies soon reap

In meadows which once lost again revive


But to this source of hope the sun did set

And comfort cast its call from the old days

Was easier to talk of new found ways

And slowly fall the victims of regret


Now no one knows the course of river’s tears

The flow of their renewal now seems gone

The curtains to that moment now is drawn

As unknown gentle fragrance reappears

Music only

I only think about how light fragrances just highlight so much to those we care about or even in public. Great poem.

Martin, just when I think you have given us your best,

you bring us delights such as "Gentle Fragrance".

Intrigue and faintly visible memories are all that is left of a once great love. The "Gentle Fragrance" lingers as a fragrance now unrecognizable.

Wonderful work here, Martin.

Nothing like it. A combination of great poetry, fragrance, and the tango. Lovely.

May we gently traverse that which is meant to be.
