Elemental: Islands

View from a plane, one of the hawaiian islands between Honolulu and Maui

Untouched by humans, islands are mesmerising and give you the most elemental experience.

My submission for this weeks WPC


Scent of life. 

Scent of life. 

I got this smell out of nowhere

reminded of a childhood moment somewhere

What was it that made it so quaint

for a life lived with utmost despair

happiness found in the remnants of care

what was it that made it so quaint

Smells of life filled with a struggle to forget

forgiveness in the present to give

forgotten but only to begin

heart full of wishes never to be seen

what was it that made it so quaint

A mystery to a simple dame.

The perfume she never wore again. 


My first try in poetry and submission for this week’s Writing prompt .
