Scent Captures Memory

Scent Captures Memory

By David Smith June 25, 2011

A public washroom, the aroma in the air

The deodorizing bars, the cleanliness to compare

Basic Training comes to light

Working the latrines, every morning and night.

The freshness in the air takes me back in time;

Military training, discipline in its prime

O the joy to be young and alive

The anchors of training where experience can thrive

Just a scent brings back the past

Experiences in life always hold fast
