The scent of a memory.........a poem

Speaking of memories what scent is it that triggers
yours a rose .....
a scarf.... her
perfume
What image remains unshakable
what memories can
consume

Was it the scent of her hair
or the aroma of her voice
the way her softness reached inside of you
leaving your manhood
no choice

Perhaps the scent of her womanhood
remembered softly among tangled
sheets
Or how her dress lay
against her legs
bending the shadows
for the treats

I never walk by a perfumed woman
but of another I will
remember
Ahh the scent of her memory
the scent of the woman
soft and tender

If only they knew just what I was
thinking and of how
I recall
No wonder I have but a smile to
give them and get one in
return ?
Thats all.........

Funny how things like a song or a scent can trigger such powerful memories and emotions. Some things are just never forgotten.

Ah, Ed - you hopeless romantic! - Those pheromones! More potent than the most exotic perfumes; - though those try to capture the same chemical complexes. Can they ever hope to capture the real things? no-o-o-o. . .

Lol....you are just a dirty old man who adores women- period! I love that about you - your appreciation for the opposite sex. it's a beautiful thing to see - a huge indicator of a man's confidence!

Has it gotten hotter in here, or is it just YOU! lol.

Ed - Another lovely celebration of women and the senses...I think I agree that scents, smells are the most evocative of memories. Beautiful. Theresa
