Daily Prompt: Smell You Later

Humans have very strong scent memory. Tell us about a smell that transports you.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRANSPORTED.

A Rose in my Garden

Childhood memories of cabbage cooking
Street dust after rain
Apple pie baking
Cigarette smoke hanging in the air
Monday washday fumes
Gas stove

A journey with the subway
Fumes of ozone in the air
Electricity passing through a tunnel
Squashed with human sardines in a train
A mixture of perfume, sweat
Spices of places and food

Coffee and Tea
Return to a workplace
New computer plastic smell
Paper charging the air
with its gloss of novelty
Aftershave of the boss

New car smell
Cat tray needing attention
Roses and lavender in the garden
A dead mouse slowly shrinking in a feline corner
Scents of my memory
Some good, some bad
Scents of a distant life

  7. Cabbage cooking … WOW – I haven’t smelled that forever but yes, I too remember it – my hearty German gret grandmother used to always cook it ALWAYS


  8. A great poem!

    The smell of cabbage cooking will always transport me back to a lodging house I stayed in as a 16 yr old in Huddersfield. I swear the landlady had a constant pan of cabbage on the stove.
