THE  WORLD  OF  SMELLS


The world of smells

Orange or apple

The difference tells.


Danger and corruption

Of putrid wells

And cadavers.


Odorous intrusions

Upon one’s space

Like a gratuitous slap on the face.


Uncovered crystal tops,

Rare fragrance

From shop to shop.


The cat sprays

 A territorial trail,

Dogs for eternity

 Upon a spot.


Lost calf in the herd


Ant on its unerring trail

To the honey-pot.


Fragrant flowers

For bees and wasps,

Like the urge to procreate.

The world of smells

Beyond sight and sound,

A new dimension

 From within
