Smells so Good… If I Remember

_____________________________________

My favorite fragrance bloomed today

But I forgot to smell it

Took its picture every which way

But I forgot to smell it

Posted the photos on all those public spaces

But I didn’t take time to smell it

Noticed it blooming in other places

But I didn’t take time to smell it

About life and flowers, how goes that phrase?

You have to take time to smell them

Thank goodness I have a few more days

To take time to stop and smell them
