Fragrance | #AtoZBloggingChallenge 2023

This post is part of the #AtoZ April Blogging Challenge. It’s my second time and this year I’m going with micro-poetry—it’s a form that I’m going to be exploring through April and hopefully, beyond. My focus here is to play upon the myriad moods and emotions of life through these varying short forms.

Today’s post stands for the letter ‘F’ and is titled:


As always, will be looking forward to your comments. If you share your link, I promise to hop over to yours right away and visit you back.

See you tomorrow with another one and then we get a break, which I’m really looking forward to. How was your week? (For those doing the AtoZ, I can tell it must have been super hectic!) Not been my ideal way to work and feel rushed all the time, but then with the AtoZ, it’s tough juggling everything else AND being in a flow state with the challenge! Not sure how long I can sustain, but will give it my best and see how I fare!

Bye for now. Here’s wishing you a lovely weekend.

  1. Wow! This one is brilliant, Esha. Rain and nostalgia goes hand in hand. Your sweet poetry is laced with memories that only a drizzle can trigger and a downpour can drown.

  2. When the words are profound in meaning, one can only go on and on reading them not knowing what to comment and how to comment. I must have read this poem at least 5 times.

  3. I got pure nostalgia from this one. I love walking in the rain when its just drizzling and this reminded me of one such morning walk through the Bio diversity park in Gurgaon 🙂

    Somehow when I clicked on the word fragrance, the skywatch post opened and I kept looking for the poem there. Pls delete my comment on that post – it wouldn’t make any sense 🙁

    1. Oh, so glad to hear this from you, Shalini. So, it’s not me alone!! I get really nostalgic when it rains. So many memories come pouring even as I write this. 🙂

  4. There is something magical and ineffable about the way some fragrances can tap into our emotions and memories, bringing us back to moments long forgotten or not! Lovely, Esha!

  5. There are some fragrances that bring back memories to me. One is the smell of lilacs. Always takes me back to my childhood and the house I grew up in. We had light purple, dark purple and white lilacs.
