Amouage Memoir Man Fragrance Review

The lush gardens are where I find my peace.
I decompress, inspire and release.
Everyone needs a retreat – and this is mine.

My roots are planted deeply in the earth.
My heart burns strong in a flesh-and-bone hearth.
I’m ready to lay hold of the day.

When life pulls me where I don’t wish to be,
like a storm that gusts me stranded at sea,
I have to recollect my way back home.

When I’m lost, I think back to who I am. . .
Keep my soul centered as a “Memoir Man.”

Could Not Care to Write | Poetry DEmix No. 11

Guerlain Vetiver

“For, how I now detest this Vetiver. I could not care to write, what-so-ever.”

I sit back, listening to classy jazz,
what they call “Italian Lounge Music.”
The kind with flutes, bongoes, all that pizzazz.
That’s why I love it; that’s why I choose it.

And I sit at my desk, pondering rhyme.
How to configure my latest update:
My remix of poems written past-time.
Scrambling because I am running late.

“Ah, no, just throw it out!” I told myself.
“The recreation just won’t do today.”
Looking over my years of fragrance wealth,
this post about Guerlain – it’s in my way.

For, how I now detest this Vetiver.
I could not care to write, what-so-ever.

Poets, if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I often take old poems and “remix” them for new posts. However, I came across one that I just had no desire to – one about the cologne Guerlain Vetiver. That’s because I went from loving it – to not being able to stand it. I am not sure what happened, but it left me with no taste to write!
