Sweet Baby Smell: Aromatic -Haiku


My own ‘baby’ is now an adult – but, if I close my eyes, I can still inhale the aromatic wraith of his damp, salty, milky hair when he was newly born.

Tiny precious child

Clamped securely to my breast

Sweet, milk-smelling hair.


So new to the world:

Deep aromas from within:

Amniotic cave…


Love and Mummy food,

Rocking baby on shoulder

Seeding life-long bond.


Years, they fly so fast:

Teen aromas won’t dispel

Ghostly infant scent…
