  6. erubescent — ha ha, had to look that one up! Added to my vocabulary. Watch for it; I may use it just to show off. Sensual (sensuous?) poem — both. Good job!

  7. Scent has an important role in a love relationship. In my work I have seen so often where a spouse who has lost a husband or wife will hold onto a garment a pillow or even in the case of my mother the aftershave of his or her loved one.

    So late to mosey up to the dVerse bar for this prompt — days playing with grandchildren took precedence. But absolutely mesmorized by this read. Sultry, sensuous — beautiful write!

  18. Beautiful piece! I’m not sure if this was intentional, but I love the two word lines; they sound like a separate poem:
    Your scent
    I breathe
    Your eyes
    I touch
    Your lips
    I smile

  23. brian miller says:

    nice play on the senses…both scent and visual. i like the word erubescent. i dont think i have ever used it. but scent and all the senses tie into that intimacy which you engender in this.

    “erubescent”, i have to look that up! and i like the form of your poem. šŸ™‚

    1. Sanaa says:

      I am glad you agree šŸ™‚ thanks for stopping by.

  26. This is an interesting slant….exploring love through scent. Well done.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thanks Sherry ā¤ļø so glad you liked it šŸ™‚

  27. p.s. says:

    “erubescent – taste of finest raisins, plums and cherries” … That is a hot line, my dear!

    It actually makes me think of slot machines in a casino, so this becomes about someone playing and someone serving, maybe.

    “Serving Maybe.” That should be a poem.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thanks P.S šŸ™‚ so glad you liked the poem.

  33. I love the idea of dancing around inside my heart, probably singing and cackling, remembering all the good things in the world, shouting my happiness in the face of the bad. This is yummy, Sanaa. šŸ™‚
