       This was garlic, and I am haitian, and I know first hand the smell of garlic, and it's used in almost everything, and I peel it a lot, cooking, and looking, and it reminded me of Thanksgiving, so I decided to write about that. Hope you like it.
    Be at peace,

    dotsS.E. (Smell) To Take Me Homedots

    Embracing the scent, I
    allowed it to take my
    and walk me to a room
    of warmth, and words, and
    family, and friends. Taking in
    the memories
    of cooking, and looking, and
    there, in my head,
    and nose, was my host, on a
    permeating throughout the
    kitchen and, taking
    it's rightful place as the flavour
    of warm memories, released my
    hand, 'til I would come for a
    revisit some other day.

      what I like about this poem (apart from the fact that it's made me suddenly so very very hungry) is the rhythm the punctuation gives it, makes it sound all jumpy in a happy way as if it is sonically leaping with joy at the memories, skipping along memory lane following the wafting smell of garlic.

    on a silly, nitpicky note, I personally feel

    hand, 'til I would come for a

    that the 'til in that there line would read better as till, exactly the same word really, but without the apostraphe hanger-on. but yeah, that's just personal taste, and if you're feeling rather fond of the apostraphe then most certainly keep it. just a passing thought of a suggestion.

    and now I'm off to eat!

      Another great write! Only one thing.

    I'm not familiar with "Embrassing" - did you mean "Embracing"?

    Other than that, I really liked this. It's so true of how we relate to smells, especially of food, and how we associate certain smells with different things or events.

    Great job!

    Cheers and God bless,

      Very nice walk, almost as though it took my hand also. Of course the smell of good food (or even the thought of it) lends it's bias into the nature of man. Personally, I would have stayed until at least after supper!
