"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Fragrance of sunlight


I hung my gown out in the sun.
Tonight I brought it in.
I cannot tell how sweet a scent,
the gown, from sun, 
my skin.

There is nothing else quite like it. I love to hang my sheets out.

MMMMMMM...the smell of sunshine and fresh outdoors will soon be a memory as winter slips in to replace it. Try as they may to copy it I have yet to smell a candle scent or air freshener that can compare.
