Fragrance

I was waiting for a bus
You came and stood beside me
On smelling the fragrance
Spreading from you
I startled
Then I squinted at you
The bus arrived
We boarded the same bus
At first I sat on a seat
There was a vacant seat
Beside me
After a little hesitation
You sat beside me
I sniffed the fragrance
Unsure
Whether the aroma of rose
Spreading from your hair or body.
On sitting ,you managed to shape
Your dishevelled French braid
Then rosy fragrance
Smelt more intensely
I remembered,
The same fragrance smelt at the
resort of Hazaribug
There was a large garden
Of roses at the resort
I frequently visited there
With my guardians
Despite not being dishy
I was attracted to you
To remember me
The evocative smells of my salad
days mostly spent
At the resort of Hazaribug

I  am Ashis Ghosh ,  live in Kolkata
