Scent and Memory

dscn0091

Psychologists speak

of scent evoked memory

echoing years ahead

like your yearly calls

come Spring,

as the earth erupts,

heady hyacinth

daffodil

petals

cherry blossoms

like snow,

much sweetness,

not so your words

tangled, slurred,

conveying winter’s frost

in mangled syllables.
