Fragrance of kindness


Even lingering fragrance of

A crushed, withered flower,

Speaks with the deaf

And smiles with the blind

She leaves behind a wisp 

Of her sweet fragrance,

Even for you, the culprit

    An awesome poem on the scent we let off with other sensed things in our daily lives. Thanks for sharing.

      Omg Aradhya this is glorious!!!!
      It is a known fact that it is much easier to write a "long" poem than it is to write a "short" one, because you have to try to stuff so many different ideas and emotions concisely, but you've done marvelouslly.
      The way you considered the way blind and deaf people perceive flowers is beautiful and the surprise ending is even better.
