Drifting memories

The smell wafted
Through the room
Carried by
A trail of smoke
Eyelids close
Sounds drown
The smell
Take over
And becomes
A feeling
The smoke morphs
Into the past
And carries away
A trail of emotions

"Into the past
And carries away
A trail of emotions"

I do remembers perfumes like that.

I felt that one very strongly, it resonates. I am sure anyone who reads that will take a bit of it with them.

lovely picture associated with that in my head... sigh ;-)
PS: loved the pic in the earlier post, by the way - somehow, the effect was a reverse life kind of situation - suddenly, the background seemed all teeming with life and energy, while the humans in front seemed like black statues, lifeless, merely the foreground of a larger life... double sigh
*grin*

So very true. I loved the way you broke at the right point.
The trail never leaves, lingers on.

Garrison Steelle, ubermensch, Jessica - Thanks

Akshay - Yes, smells are usually associated with the past. And some are very powerful.

livinghigh - Thanks. The background being more 'active' than the foreground is what drew me to take that picture. You have captured it very well.

:..M..: - Yes, The trail never leaves, it lingers on. :-)

Ariel - Yes, coffee always brings back memories!!

Always that good "spirit" in your creations. You really can create atmospheres. Do you have paper works as well ?
Anyways I'll be passing by again. Ciao!
