Scented Haiku



This week's theme: Scents



Brewed to perfection
Rich aroma of coffee
Bitter sweet bean smell
New shed, fresh and sweet
Woody scent warming my nose
Naturally good

Artificial scents
Joss sticks and essential oils
Give me a headache..


Horrid accident
Gran's nose and taste buds damaged
Cardboard smells and taste

  2. I can't decide whether I like the coffee or the wood one, better. Usually when you pen these, I have a definite favorite but between those two, I can't decide. :)

  8. Thanks everyone. My Gran died in the 1980's. She never regained her sense of taste and smell. It's something we all take for granted so I wanted to add that aspect of the theme. :O)

  9. Coffee has been my special friend even when I was very young. I must now go make some fresh rich coffee.

  14. These haikus made me jealous (cause I cannot write them). Just like always, I loved the haikus, Madeleine.

  17. Rachna, shame we can't write them together then you'd know you could, too.

    Bless you Story Queen.

    Yes my poor Gran never recovered. It must have been horrid for her.

    Sounds like the coffee one wins out LOL! ;O)
