I discover peace in creation from the essence of the woods. People can be perplexing but nature is simple. So I rest in my garden, over a spicy bed of coriander. My Cypress trees keep me safe, lined up like a thick green wall. And my cedars stretch to grant me shade.There’s also my lemon tree, who reaches out her gifts to me; her zesty yellow hearts.

But in the center, there’s my Storax – my companion. We both sit solitary – alone in the middle. Sometimes, I see the Storax cut and bleed. He sees my pains as well. And, although he never speaks, I know that he feels them.

The Storax taught me a lesson one day. The first time I saw him pierced, I watched him bleed. But, to my surprise, his sap wasn’t sour. No, it was sweet like Vanilla. I learned, too, that when I’m pierced, I can either bleed sweet or bitter. And it’s in those times that my true inner essence is discovered.

So, when you are pierced and bleed, will you choose to become more sour? Or do you want to be sweet, too, like my friend the Storax tree?

      1. Well I learned two of them. White Throated Swallow and the Blue Jay. The Blue Jay i kind of cheated because I’ve seen him outside a lot anyways.


      2. Cardinals also look cool. I’m also intrigued by ravens but I don’t think we have them here, just regular crows. Ravens are bigger, smarter, and can repeat words


      1. Oh!
        😏 No it’s not…
        It’s the name of my kitten, I love him so much that he’s at the end of my pen name!
        But my initials are real – I just put Phoenix at the end!!!!!
        But I wouldn’t mind if my actual name was Phoenix… It’s cool….. 😏

    1. I realized this is kind of confusing between styrax and storax. I think I’m going to change it to Storax – which I think is more commonly known and related to benzoin than styrax


  1. I was curious about your direction here in the beginning, with these fragrance poems. How this would come across. I couldn’t quite predict it. But my, how you’ve turned it into something so beautiful. ❤️

    1. aww EClia you are so making my day! I wonder the same thing when I write them! I only write when inspired, at which point so many thoughts come to my mind. After that, it’s just a matter of assembling them.

      I really got the idea here after researching a little about one of the main ingredients in this – benzoin. Benzoin is the sweet sap from the storax tree. When I had that idea, with the fragrance name “essence,” I decided to focus on the cutting the tree and the sap coming out sweet. I try to draw inspiration from natures “Natural” processes.

      But anyways, thanks again!! :))

      1. Haha a pun is something that can mean too things kind of in a joking way. So you said the ending was sweet. But it was also about vanilla, which is sweet as well. So it can be taken literally and figuratively 😁


  2. Stunning….I was captured in your words….
    ” I learned, too, that when I’m pierced, I can either bleed sweet or bitter. And it’s in those times that my true inner essence is discovered.”

    1. That is a VERY good one 🙂 I talked my friend into buying it for his wife. But I need to wait until I can go to MACY’s again and get some fresh sprays of it to write on it!

      1. I had to look up exigent, haha. I am some what the same. I am demanding in a certain quality since I have become familiar with what so many have to offer. But at the same time I like to have a whole variety to experience!
