    I wait patiently for
    our encounter
    ~ the enchanted evening
    that we will
    for the very first time meet
    as dim lights encircle our
    night and the aroma of
    blue cypress
    introduces
    us to silence
    I search for a hint
    of your smile inside
    the flicker of
    fire shielded
    behind the clouded
    glass
    of a crystal lamp

    I envision the event as
    such a wonderous
    occasion and my own
    anxiety takes hold
    and somehow gets the
    best of me

    In my now rainforest
    there are essendulums
    hanging from
    every branch of my
    tree of thought--
    There are
    tea lights held by three
    spirit muses
    displayed in
    artistic awe

    I feel the warmth of
    you -- with flaming
    beauty
    love
    and well-being
    as each characteristic
    displays its
    own secret meaning

    A special blend of
    Cistus labdanum
    and Rosewood
    creates a breathtaking
    atmosphere ... one
    that I will cherish
    until the end of your
    arrival
    ... and I envision
    this all as I wait patiently
    for our encounter
    whenever that time
    will allow

    Just know that I think
    of you each time I light
    the lamp... smelling rosewood
    and
    burning
    the midnight oil ...

    You have returned with a vengeance !!!
    I see every word in this narrative escape ...I can almost smell every flower and see the flickering tea lights ...I actually felt myself get excited as I progressed through this vision....
    Nice vision

    Peace and Love

    you've set the scene and the mood with your words...
    and you've done it artistically..
    I could almost smell the combined scents wafting through the air..

    Hey sistah gurl, I'm glad you could visualize the beauty in this piece... I'm hoping I can get over my cold so that I can enjoy smelling the scents and even enjoy "aroma"therapy at its best!

    Thank you for acknowledging this piece and its artistically challenging beauty ... it's often difficult in trying to make certain scents come to life on a page, but its definitely a challenge that I like to try to do!

    Visions of smells make writing complete!

    One Luv, and thanks for reading the scents!
