The attar of a rose
follows throughout the day,
from its glass prison vase
to the promise of a summer’s day,
with touch of a satin cloak
in the chill of spring, scented smoke
curls into twilight
before its petals close for the night.

Today Susie hopes to inspire our writing with the scent of perfume.
She says that even reading the word perfume can take our thoughts to a favourite scent, be it from a bottle or the scented air of nature. Of course, there are also scents that evoke not so pleasant memories, either way perfume has power.
Today’s challenge is simple: Write about perfume. Please share an original poem based on the challenge and please take time to read the perfume inspired poetry of your fellow poets.
