smiles. keep dreaming....loland hope the cold gets better if that is for real...nice write rene...
Very nice, Rene(if your cold is still hanging on, I hope you feel better soon.)
Love how each mini poem is a re-interpretation of a scene! The lines of reality and fevered imagination blur!
definitely something nice to imagine... especially with a cold!
ahchoobetchooshe ran after him!Nice Magpie!
Very Unusual, all of us girls dream of a little pampering when we are sick. This was romantic in a "sick" sort of way (pun intended)LOL
love the scent of a fine gentleman...very nice...bkm
wow, that was lovely and i am lost in the scent :Ddreamy piece..
Sometimes it can be sort of pleasant to be *a little* sick, cos then one can snuggle in with the tissues and chicken soup and watch old movies all day guilt-free!
Took me there, vividly. I like the scene shift.Maybe I should start carrying handkerchiefs :)
I like this!
If the gentleman comes back when you have a cold, because you have a cold, that's the closest thing to safe sex on the planet.
Nice Magpie. This is quite lovely. Love and Light, Sender
Rene this is beautifully written...how scents do awaken our memory...:-)
I LOVED it.......
Harsh ... you deserved/needed Acqua di Parma. Nice writing!
Nice job you took it right back to the Thirties.
Love the 'black and white/sunday afternoon' - it's almost a story in its own.
Loved this take.
Mmmmmmmmmmmm, the scent of a gentleman. Wait. What does that smell like?
Oh from beauty ...to the reality of a cold! So very well written, I like it.
oh yesa gentlemana true romantic you aredo men still carry them?no, just a small bottle of purell
thank you all for stopping by..I'm all better now and not contagious anymore...i think :)Rene
As good a daydream as any...maybe a cure for the common cold!
I like.. :) good magpie River
I promise you that I will remember your poem with my first cold of the season, and it will make me feel better!
Choice of menthol or violet?? No contest! :)
i love the old time, romantic setting of the first two stanzas. . .and then the last, bringing it back to the here and now. i'm not sure if i'm grossed out by handkerchiefs or think they're cool. nice magpie.
loved the feel of this! thanks for stopping by
ohhhh sooooo romannnnntic.I want to smell, I want to smell! I WANT TO SMELL!!!!
excellent and unusual.
Inhale.. breathe deep. Imagine what you will.
Love how scents can take us to a certain place in time, well remembered... Great Magpie!Thanks for taking the time to explore mine. I think I am enjoying the mystery of the gremlins as much as you all.
Must be a Sunday afternoon in ragweed season! Great Maggie, Rene!
nice write...great way to use your cold as a muse :)
Thanks everyone for being so sweet, stopping by and leaving me some kind words...I dig you all.Rene
Nie take on the eau de parma!
The mentholatum helps but you'd rather it did smell better :) Nice Magpie.
I could relate to your Magpie though no gentleman stopped with a remedy. :)Mine is up.PG
