I awoke by the fig tree to an unlocked sky,
Like an azure break between tall green firs.
Everything was beautiful and fresh.
An autumn breeze glided across me,
Carrying with it all the sharp scents of the forest.

And you were there, too, my first partner.
You gave me a fig and together we consumed
This small purple fruit, like a heart in our mouths;
Like our own hearts that we so foolishly devoured.
We took its leaves, and covered our nakedness.
And we laid back asleep.

I opened my eyes to a cool night.
As all our nights had been lately.
The garden of our love has long since ceased.
You gave me a fig and together we grazed.

I asked, “Where did you find figs
in this winter of our lives?”
You said, “By faith, my love. . .
By faith, the wild fruit can still grow.”
And under the fig tree, we found our hope.

Cepes and Tuberose (Aftelier) | Fragrance Poetry

There were cepes on our plate.
à “La Ville Lumiere” – we ate.
They’ve told the tale:
No peers prevail
from hearts you confiscate.

You dripped with tuberose
and bitter orange and rose.
Away I went,
Seduced by scent
Like magic to my nose.

We ventured to the wood
as Hansel and Gretel would.
But cocoa castles,
harms and hassles!
And I’m Red Riding Hood.

There was magic in the shroom.
I was lost in porcini doom.
After I ate
I Hallucinate.
Be careful what you consume.

There were cepes on our plate.
You bewitched me on that date.
They’ve told the tale:
No peers prevail!
My heart, you did confiscate.

Fragrance Poetry inspired by Cuir Gardenia from Aftelier.

You’re a fauna among flowers.
Seldom to settle down.
Both wondrous and wild.
Making men mad and madly in love.

At times, I plunge into your petals.
Soft, satin and smooth.
You’re a Garden of Gardenia.
And I’m inebriated in nectar.

But your dichotomy is dramatic.
You’re not frail and feeble foliage.
Pull your Petals and you will Prick.
Even, arguably, animalic.

To end, your allure is honored.
Your charm, cherished.
Your delicacies are delightful.
And your ferociousness, feared.
