    I took a moment today
    and looked around
    and for the first time in a long dark while
    I almost managed a smile
    as I thought back to later years
    the smell of rotten earth eased those tears
    Every once in a while I smell Fall, I feel Fall
    and remember a time for worn things to fall to the ground
    and decompose allowing the old to fertilze the new
    remembering Winter is right around the corner
    where under the cover of white purity
    i will be able to curl up in bed
    and stay inside my own head
    for months at a time
    concentrate on rhyme

    It's amazing how a single smell associated with an amazing first kiss can bring back a sense of innocence and rebirth.
