The smell of Sichuan peppercorns
are embedded in my clothes
from the season’s harvest.
I came home in time for the holidays.
Little red peppercorns hung on green leaves:
That was my early Christmas Tree.

You can say I live a spiced life,
travelling from one place to the next.
Sometimes, men feel the breeze on their face
and hear the call of the wild – for freedom.

I know the routine well,
when I walk through the door.
First, you’ll grab me in your arms.
Then, you’ll throw out my tobacco
And lay out a proper suit. . .
. . .And you’ll ask me to stay.

But, soon, it’s time to move on to the next harvest.
But I linger for a moment, thinking, this time I might stay.
After all, every man needs to start a new “Journey” sometime. . .

Aqua Divina (Bulgari) | Fragrance Poetry

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Aqua Divina from Bulgari.

She’s soft.
Soft but salty
Like the unexpected mouth full of sea water
While swimming at the beach.
She’s pungent,
Like the fruit on the counter
That’s so ripe, its scent fills the house.
She has a ginger-like snap:
You’re not sure if she’s being spicy or not.
And she’s just a touch of white florals,
Like a girl who just wants to act
Just A “bit” like a lady
(but not too much).
Yes, Her sweetness is there,
It just takes a minute to shine through.

I don’t know how I fell for her,
But she’s swept me off-to-sea and back
Like an aqua divina.
And I now lay stranded,
Left to basque in her sun
(Or to dry-out and wither?).

. . .I’m not sure,
But such is love. . .

It was half bitter orange,
Half sweet cherry.
This cup the waitress served me
Left me feeling kind of hairy.

I said, “Is the Amaretto?”
She said “No it’s sugar. . .Trust Me!”
It was super sweet and spicy
With a bite that killed me softly.

In a dark red glass,
With her lipstick on the rim,
This drink felt kind of dangerous
Like a rose from Brothers Grimm.

She said, “I’m the kind of girl
Your mother warned you about.”
I said “Stop! This cup is ‘Poison!’”
And I’m already out!
