The Scent of a WomanA Chapter by My Fair Lady
Another collaboration with Yos.. Accomplished poet and friend.
What I really miss is your smell,
I can watch you,
but what I really want now,
is to smell your hair,
what would it be like?
To cup your long hair in my hands,
get it close to my face ,
close my eyes and inhale you deep ?
What would you smell of now?
If it is early in the morning
Far before the sunrise, I will smell of
Handmade goat milk and cocoa butter soap
I smell of morning coffee or spicy chi tea
And a starched apron
By noon I smell of fresh baked bread
Spicy sweetness of cinnamon and clove
Savory smells of home made soup and onions
Fresh vegetables and herbs
Traces of vanilla and dark chocolate will linger
Swirled with goat milk soap
Do you like it?
Mid afternoon is the time of
Lemon dish soap
Still, lingering about me
Vanilla, soap and now bleach
Fresh peaches, apples or bananas
Nutmeg, garlic and pickles
When night comes,
Clean cotton night gown
Blackberry wine or chamomile tea with honey
Ready for you
My untamed hair smells how twilight looks
My skin the scent of night
When I opened my eyes
You no longer around me
But I still smell your sweet aroma
The lovely scent of a real woman
Aroma therapy memory
A recount of one woman’s day
Not of sound
Neither touch nor taste
The scent of you
