The year is 2020 and a global pandemic

is killing off the old and sick.

One of the symptoms is loss of smell.


In the kitchen

Bacon sizzles while

Garlic and onions

Transform in olive oil

Aromatic chicken fries

Rhubarb pie bakes

Yes, I smell them all!!

In the forest

Fragrance of Sitka roses

Purple and white phlox

Bog rosemary

Spruce, hemlock, alder

Mosses and lichens

Yes, I smell them all!

On the beach

Tide recedes nostrils flare

Seaweed, seastars, clams

Barnacles, mussels

Salty air

Seagull poop

Yes, I smell them all!
