The smell of the rose
Tickled my nose,
Leaving a mark
Inside my little heart.

Now wherever I go,
The memories follow;
Sweet as a rose,
Tingling my soul.

(This was formerly titled “Inside its little heart” but I have decided to change it as I revised the poem on February 6, 2013.)

I’ve always adored cuddly little kittens and their heart shaped pink noses. The heart will always remember the sweetest memories, just as an animal’s keen nose will always remember the sweetest scents. When sweet memories come with sweet fragrances, the heart on in the body will remember the feeling just as well as the heart on the face will remember the smell.

Pencil and Pencil crayons on acid-free recycled paper from my sketchbook. It has been a LONG while since I’ve drawn a cat; this is the first I’ve done in years!

Great for Valentine’s Day, birthdays and more.

Several of my products at Zazzle , including cards and bookmarks, feature this image with the poem, and they can be customized as desired. To see all products with this image, go here.
