Scents

Scents

scents…
pleasant memories
of times past
caught on the breeze…
talcum powder
sweet milk
babies’ breath
mother’s faint perfume
dad’s aftershave
close friends
departed
waiting in the light
watching this life
play out

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
