Never mind the date on the calendar. Never mind the cherry blossoms and hyacinth.
I have not yet smelled spring.
If I was mixing the perfume of spring…
- Collect equal parts of pollen and phermones of earthworms
- Add the faintest wisp of pine sap
- No cop out with blooming flowers — they disguise the true scent of spring
- Keep cool as a rainy breeze
- Then hint at warmth to come
- Soon, I hope.
