Thanks Jennifer. Sometimes objects connect us inexplicably to the past. I have clippers from my Gandfather. When I use and hold them I feel connected to him. Even the smell of clipper oil transports me back in time to his barbershop.

Richard, Very keen your sense. I must agree with Silent One. You brought back a memory for each that encounters this Senryu. -Richard

scents may leave fabric, but they never leave our memories once our senses idolise them... nice one Richard.
