The scent of Your Soul

Wafting in the air,sweet scent of your soul, Like a garden of lilac shrub and sweet pea; Exuding my path, deodorant of your whole, Like the path of African civet cat or hill Of scent-born-beetles. You are not afar, Your beacon,your sweet aroma is distinct; Yours is not red-herring,but a sun’s compass; Ageless trajectory that never misleads . I am close,nearer than phalanges to metacarpus; The scent of your soul,beam of light to my sight, The scent of your soul,eternal buoy in my life ocean; You are the mouth, I am the hand; in sun and in shade, Does hand miss its journey to the mouth? Does hen Miss its path to the brood?When horse comes to stable, It does not need the bridle ; often in hide and seek, Romeo knows where Juliet is. The scent of your soul, Like the moon in the sky,which hand can shroud? The scent of your soul, effulgence of the sun, Which curtain can veil?When thunder sparks, Who can extinguish its light with his breath? Doubt not, delay not, deter not,no fissure; Like onion’s flesh we are bound;like hunchback Glued to the back we are locked;you wait not in vain, Because of the scent of your soul,we shall cut cake. Oct.12th,2014.

Intriguing write! I liked the hand and mouth analogy most. Very real...Also...When thunder sparks, who can extinguish its light with his breath! Powerful...Love clearly depicted. Good luck in the contest.
