Petrichor & Cinnamon

Petrichor & Cinnamon

Olé Olfaction!
nasal receptors
spring into action
aromatic delights
lift the spirits
with flights
of fancy and fantasy
endorphin induced
natural ecstasy
a fresh mown lawn
green leaf volatiles
from blades newly torn
odor of the baker’s ware
wafting breezily
through the air
brings a smile to the weary
high street passenger
the glum feel cheery
fresh roasting coffee beans
fill tired hearts with hope
and revitalize their dreams
sizzling bacon on the grill
makes vegetarians
lose their will
cinnamon acts like no other
pleasing men alone
just like a lover
but the very finest scent
comes with rainbows
as though heaven sent
Petrichor follows the rain
paving the way for the fresh:
pause, reflect; start again
