    The sweet honeyed delicate aroma, wafted
    from nearby.
    I had to stop and smell the flowers as my dog
    had a try.
    Childhood memories this fragrance evoked, of
    barefeet and long moist grass and chasing
    butterflies.
    The sweet honeyed delicate aroma, teased my
    senses and seduced me into revelrie as seconds
    turned into minutes.
    All of the beauty within it.
    Yellow blossoms with white kissed lips, bow and
    seem to magically dip.
    And I remember the humming birds who did feed
    off the nectar...indeed.
    The sweet honeyed delicate aroma, wafted nearby
    and seduced me into a revelry of long forgotton memory.
    Sweet
    honeyed
    delicate
    aroma

    and take a deep breath mmmmmm!
    I love the smell of flowers. Lilacs are my favorite.

    Thanks for reading and relating!

    Yeah, Bishop you would smell some BBQ, with ya hungry self!
    Thanks so muc both of you for reading. This was inspired by nature and evolved through memories. People are not aware of the way the brain works to store memories, sight alone is not
    but smell, touch, taste all of these things are sensors with memories. Ever notice how a grahm ******* can take you back to pre-school years...add some grape juice and I am back at Miss Rosie Jakes nursery shcool down south! LOL
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUE
