Here's to the celebration of the olfactory and the circular nature of memory and desire ~


Oracle of flame
How many lives
Echo within
The coiled histories
of
One
Rose

~ ~

At the lip of amber
Wet ink
Pools within the
Circular architecture
Of memory
Becoming
Aqueous

~ ~

Oval-Eye
Rosette of protection
House
The private
And resinous
Library of the soul

~ ~

After years
At sea
Arriving
On land
Touch me…

Almost

~ ~

To look back
One last time
Desire and memory
Ask us
To trust
Without knowing


~ ~

Quivering 
Leaf to leaf
Gather the
"Immeasurable endurance"
Of
Desire


Elizabeth Salper


This poetic concoction was inspired by a La Curie perfume
Artisan perfume Tucson, Arizona

"Immeasurable endurance" from the poem The Roses XXVI

by Rainer Maria Rilke
