    A moment of reflection
    About the break in time
    When summer greets fall
    As a breeze becomes winds;

    I close my eyes today to think
    About the aroma carried in on
    The breeze of the beginning of
    School and the end of summer;

    If you sit quietly on a hill of fresh
    Cut grass you may be able to find
    The moment the breeze changes
    To give you a whiff of your past;

    The scent cannot be explained as
    A simple aroma for it arrives in
    Many forms and fashion but will
    Always remind us fall has arrived.

    It causes excitement full of curiosity
    As it captures reminiscent within
    anticipation about your first like,
    first crush, first kiss and first love;

    It takes you into dreams of days
    You wished to never repeat and
    Moments you desire to revisit for
    The sheer life changing lesson;

    And yet today all you wish for is
    The chance to be swept away by
    The aroma carried on a breeze of
    Reflection into a quiet daydream.

    every line, every verse... incredible.... this peace, outstanding in its entirety...

    but this


    "It takes you into dreams of days
    You wished to never repeat and
    Moments you desire to revisit for
    The sheer life changing lesson;

    And yet today all you wish for is
    The chance to be swept away by
    The aroma carried on a breeze of
    Reflection into a quiet daydream"


    ...is me completely ...

    thank you Poet

    Man this in a very introspective piece that captures the rare occasions when we can sit in solitude and capture the essence of a thing, be it a season, flowing stream or simply a rock but the privilege to appreciate its order and beauty is a rare treat.
    Thanks poet
