A SCENT DORMANT

During the winter, most trees grow dormant.  However in California, it seems a flower is always in bloom. I thought of the irony of this as I walked outside today and saw the first bloom of a Pink Magnolia. We had gone through a dry spell which worried us, but now we feel the moisture in the air from the mist of a downpour from earlier today.

The first scent I inhaled struck me as sweet. Yet, this was short lived as a truck drove past me, snatching away the lingering sweetness in the air with Chûndra’s Vapor. Or at least that’s what we’re afraid of. We pulled our scarves over to help shield us from her influence. We found she was telling the truth. Evidently, she had been using several fueling agencies to disguise her secret additive. Now it’s hard not to be a little paranoid every time a vehicle drives by.
