Oud Luban (Aftelier) | Perfume Poetry

Poetry Inspired by the Perfume Oud Luban from Aftelier.

I combed the earth
To find a cure for my wounds
[I am the broken hearted-man].
I roamed past
The lign aloes [planted by God],
And the giant cedars
Reaching to heaven.
Nothing could ease my pain;
Neither khus oil,
Nor the fruit of the goodly tree
Could return my joy.
I prayed for a sign. . .
. . .for a miracle. . .
But I came to the Boswella tree
and swung my axe in faith,
As incense swings through the air
[while smoke ascends like a prayer].
And where blade met bark,
From there’s came the healing milk,
And so the mending
Of a broken heart.

So Calmly
Underneath my radar. . .
Time to strike?

Heart Blossoms
Dark green with red patches. . .
Well disguised.

Mellow smoke
Slowly burning passions. . .
Simmering.

Thick Venom
In darkened aloeswood. . .
Such is love.

Trees are an amalgam
Of green and brown.
Green illustrates growth;
And hardened strength by the brown.

Cut a tree in half, you have
a panorama of my life.
Cover the ends in shellac
And display my story.
Every era – a lifeline, to be exact.
Times that smelled sweet
But soon tasted bitter after that.

Old war horses like me,
We were legends in our own timesLike Niseans.
We came in like lions
But now. . . go out like lambs.
On our way to extinction.

But, on our way back to dust,
we only hope and pray
For new trees to take root
On the ground we’ve lain.
