For S.

after so many years,
that flowery perfume
on anyone
will jostle up remnants
of a love
long buried.

Don't worry –
that love
has been resting in peace
and does not
compete with yours.

– Leonard Blumfeld (© 2012)

Written around fragrant, jostle, remnant from 3WW.

The power of a remembered smell can conjure up all sorts of spectres from the past. I like the resolution of this poem.

My 3WW
