Your scent infused me in aisle ten

at the corner market today…

Caught unaware and ill prepared

I was instantly transported to

a time when amber orbs held my gaze

and be-stilled my heart.


Refracted images of brief interludes

where little was said and much transpired

pervaded my thoughts…


Powerful emotions paused my life

as though it were merely a digitally

mastered reproduction.


A wayward shopper bumps me in passing

and as if pressing the play button

sets the day back in motion.


You would think after nearly three decades

the intensity of your memory would fade

and yet it remains…
