I was driving Bright sunny day Cool breeze blowing Through my hair I caught a scent And was immediately Transported in memories Back to my childhood Recall was amazing Instant daydream Of all those years ago Seeing and hearing Just like I was there Backyard barbecue Friends and family I think I was eight It was a great day More fun than I’ve Had in ages with People long gone Woke up from My reverie Feeling the sun Intense on my arm How awesome it Was to be able To relive that day In perfect clarity All triggered by a Smell caused from A source so Unexpected Awake I notice An errant spark From my cigarette Has gone astray In the moments that Follow I frantically Try to beat out My burning coat sleeve
