Beached (WB for Fletch)

I had smelled it before, but so long ago.

Had been there too, but not in this life.

The salted air, a memory jolt.

A younger me, brought to life through my nose.

There was no spray on my face,

and yet I tasted it.

Walking upon the sand,

granulated heat upon my soulís traveling shoes.

While seagulls screeched alarm,

So many shores away...

So many waves I had ridden since then..

And so many more I would be riding.

This nasal assault, a tube of time travel,

a young girl, a different path I walked then.

wanting now, to curl up into this memory

of† perfect comfort....

Author's Notes:
Thanks for the word list Fletch!!! These are fun, and a good way to get the old noodle in gear, thanks again.

perfect, walking, nose, curl, rising, spray, sand, shore, tube, waves...

Barbie- You did admirably well here. The poem spoke volumes while allowing one to forget that it is a word bank poem. Will have to try one sometime.
