As I looked at the picture on the wall, I remembered being there in the rain forest in Puerto Rico. The foliage was heavily laden with moisture. There was a musky smell where trees had fallen and rotted. There were rain drops rolling off the white petals of a group of flowers along the road. The middle of the flower was a dark pink like no crayon I had ever seen. The green was so dark that it looked like velvet.
I remembered leaning down to smell the flower. It was a mixture of lavender and rose petals. It was not a strong overpowering smell but it was light and feathery. You thought your nose would be able to retain this smell forever but as I look at the picture, I can not even begin to recall the smell.
It is amazing what intricate colors and aromas can come from flowers that we know are a work of art from above. I must remember that I was very fortunate to have been there and had the experience.
There are times when I have been out in a crowd of people and I get a whiff of cologne that has lavender or rose and my mind goes back to that day in the rain forest...
