A Timeless Scent

As seasons come and go~ They leave scents that are endless~ that are unforgettable! Who can resist the delicate fragrance exuded by a viburnum, mahonia and honeysuckle? The sweet-spicy aroma emanated by a daphne shrub midst winter chill? Who can forget the scents of earthy herb~like autumn blooms, chrysanthemums with bursting cosmos, the sugary scent of Katsura leaves as they turn to gold in late autumn? And who cannot be mystified by the heavenly scents of cherry blossoms in bloom in early magical spring? But of all the unforgettable scents that seasons can bring~ There is that one scent that I cannot be happy without. I the love the petrichor smell after the summer's first rain knowing that it's the prelude to my most awaited exquisite scent~ the scent of blooming roses, heralding the onset of summer. The powdery and delicate scent reminds me of my childhood, the joy of growing up, and the sublime feeling of falling in love~ lasting through all seasons of my life. The feelings that scent of roses bring I have no words~ but only one~ TIMELESS. 1 April 2021 For " My Favorite Scent (s)Poetry Contest" Sponsored by Chantelle Anne Cooke 1st place Entered for "All Yours ( April 12) Poetry Contest Sponsored by Brian Strand 1st place
