MEMORY- A Poem by Angela Matemotja


            

I recalled a scent today.  A deep ingrained memory from my far past.
I couldn’t recall the scent precisely, but could not deny that it was indeed a memory from my past.  

A deep ingrained memory from my far past.

Oh, that old familiar Scent!

Inhaled I deeply trying to get a good whiff, hoping to remember.
The scent then came on Strong and I could just barely feel it’s warm hue against the tips of the fingers of my mind. The scent was that strong.

Oh, the Scent So Strong!

Then suddenly it vanished. The scent was gone and all hope of capturing the memory with it.

I recalled a scent today.  A forever lost memory from my far past.
