Full Incense by Montale is Perfume Poetry

Stalled thoughts searching slowly for a new home.
Back-and-forth, floating like a memory.
Swaying incense – a swinging pendulum.
Hearts convalesce by holy remedy.

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Full Incense from Montale.

Swaying incense imitates pendulums.
The back-and-forth, swaying like memories.
Priceless moments, suddenly expired.
It leaves a lot left to be desired.

Your classic aftershave signature scent.
The varnish on the pews. . cedar ceilings.
Soft, grey skies. Long-lost relatives’ faces.
How stalled thoughts drift to new and old places.

I slide down to the brown kneeling cushion.
Life keeps ticking like the incense swinging.
Familiarity often brings peace.
But I’m saying “Goodbye” down on my knees.

Here, at a funeral, hearts convalesce.
Lost in thought by the scent of “Full Incense.”

  1. Ceremonious bittersweet notes. I love the worded/wooded effect of the aftershave, polishing and shining memories in preparation to pay respect, an adieu, a farewell, there you’ve given poetry to the last goodbye…..the smell of wood and earth is divine, etched in memory it lingers forever. I love the respect you offered to the fragrance.
