The fragrance which you left
here in my room
like a flower of Freesia
has a color
of fondness
and a voice
of affection.
This fragrance walks with me
everywhere with great panache ,
tossing itself on my bed ;
And with its every turn
its drenching me
into the realization
of your presence,
covering me into a blanket
of your omnipresent
