After a certain, point, senses are the only memory that still works! A nice memory.

The sharpness of memory through the senses; the best triggering thing for memories. I truly love this Maureen. I've tried, and even hadv to read at university, most of Proust's first book of "Remembrance of Things Past"; where everything is based on one's senses. I could write a similar poem using this same title but watching, and smelling my Nona rubbing my chest with homemade garlic; mustard; horseradish, and other things to rid my body of a cold.

Scents and sounds the strongest for sure. There is a cooking poetry contest on right now, that would make a wonderful original poem, knowing what I do of your poetics. xomo

If you don’t stop eating garlic you won’t find a vampire! Now for the poem, it’s a sad and happy thing to remember those who go before us. I like the intimate feel you so skillfully portrayed.

LOL! Always been more of a Werewolf kinda gal. Thank you, so much for "the intimate feel", there is an iceberg under there. I loved her the most, but she hurt me the most. xomo

Oo! I can't think of a better way to say 'thank you' and 'ouch!' in the same breath.! Excellent!

Onions are tasty but...you don't make many friends, however, if you have a grandmother who loves you as she did, who cares! Lovely dearest, Maureen! Hugs xxx

LOL! You struck a chord with that one! My mum told me several times that if I didn't stop eating so much garlic, I'd never find a man ;D, Thank you sweet D! xomo <3
