rougeberry

Walking up the stairs
I experienced, more than smelled,
the fragrance you used to wear.
It came from I don't know where,
an embracing, surrounding me
warmly, like a duvet, a pashmina.
Cozy. Though you never were that.
What was that scent? Fresh, spring,
fruity, earthy, so like you.
So very present, I almost missed you.
