Carpe Diem Time Machine #8, Perfume


Today is the first truly warm day of the spring here. The feel is that we are well into spring yet, because of the severe winter tender petals are still in bud stage. To awaken spring within me and  for a chance to dream of the type of garden I wish for this year I set out for the terminal market.   it is an open air market and everything is in full bloom.  As I stroll down the aisle the very much alive and blooming rose bushes are in competition with the fully blooming hyacinths. It’s a bonanza of colors, and the breeze stirs the pot.

full bodied perfumes

from hyacinths and roses

my senses whirl

  1. You really brought that vivid scene to us – the interaction between the prose and haiku is great – and I really liked that line of awakening spring in you – think that was a very nice way of putting it. Reading this felt almost therapeutical. Very nicely done.
