Bath-time, a wet dog
Boots that have sat inside for a while after getting wet
The ocean
A field of flowers after it rains
The bathroom after I take a shower

Things that smell like childhood

Cookies baking on a rainy day
Popcorn popped on the stove
Cinnamon in warm milk with honey
Chammomile tea
Pomegranates bursting with fruit
patchouli oil
nag champa
hot soup and biscuits
garlic stir-fried in olive oil
a campfire
Dr. bronner’s Peppermint soap
Dad’s breath after he drinks a beer
Goldfish crackers and corn chips
Lilacs, grandma’s handkercheif

Things that smell like now

B after her shower
Kai’s wet head
A cold beer
A desert sunset
bacon & fried eggs

Things that smell like the future
An ocean breeze
A rain forest
Grandchildren’s heads

Flowers at a funeral

Love the World Awake

(title inspired by a Shaman's Dream song by the same name)
~click the link to hear the song, it's pretty awesome~

You feel it
Your magical
Burns forth among the clouds
The dreamer
The soulful
The beauteous
People tell you that
You Shine

and you know that
you do.

You have the power
Maybe its dormant
or it has been for a while

But I am here to tell you
that you can
Love the world awake.
