~ The Hint of a Scent ~

Soft silk
perfection to touch
Fold upon fold
protecting the heart within

Dare smell the aroma
Heady with scent
of love
of desire
of bliss

Feel it
with the fine hair of the tip of your nose
Breathlessly stroke your fingertip on it’s curve
feel it tickle your cheek
Press it to find the comfort

Taste it
with the tip of your tongue
tease the bud open
suck the flavour
too perfect to bite
too perfect to eat

Listen
to the silence of it’s perfection
yet to the business of those
in worship of it’s beauty

See
it stands proud to show it’s glory
It feeds to show it’s function
Sensational
in it’s ultimate reason to exist

It fades
It falls
It is no more
But a memory
of perfection
of softness
of silken bliss
left in the hint of a scent
