haunting elegance

As the sun was about to set,

he closed his eyes; head tilted to the sky.

For the light breeze carries

the fragrance of her to him.


Once he had lived with an inexperienced heart;

a time when he would only

want to know her perfumes by name.


True, that knowledge is still important

to their relationship.

However, now he knows

it is far more essential to know her.

For she gives life, not just to a manmade fragrance;

she is haunting elegance,

love that calls out his name.
