Poem: Odor

By: Anupama Kadwad


Odor is such a strong sense
many beautiful memories linked with it.
Exhilarating smell of mud
after the first rains.
Invigorating smell of incense sticks
linked with prayers.
Exuberant smell of new books
associated with first day of school.
The fragrance of flowers
Mother used to wear daily.
Aroma, odor, fragrance.
so many different names.
Feelings same they evoke
It’s simply enlivening.
Over the years the senses
have grown weak
The above things which once brought joy
are now in the distant past
Stored in minds compartment
Wrapped in the folds
To recollect as time moves.
