Scentimental





I love the smell of oranges in the morning
it's very appealing and sends my senses reeling

Jegan prefers the smell of sherry in the evening
it gets him merry and sends him reeling

Lee likes the smell of an open window at dusk
it's a raw resuscitation to his next inhalation

Karl remembers the smell of dying embers
from the fire that burned all through the night

Mandy is driven crazy by the smell of Jalfrezi
her sinuses are stricken by the spices and chicken

Brian's memories are triggered
by the reek of spent gunpowder
Oh deer he missed

Ollie has a tear in  his eye
when he sniffs the spice of his stir-fry
the ginger, garlic and chilli
make him all excited and silly

Lee B enjoys the scent of cinnamon
baked into his Mum's apple pie
you may ask why
because it's bloody lovely!
