Day 4 of AtoZ challenge - Today's alliterative affirmation:
she carried memories
like the once-fragrant flowers tiny
wisps hanging in the air;
the cold stench of a laboratory
like the shrunk clothes—

I am not following the official prompt today. This is a poem I had written sometime back, reworked on it today. It's a poem I was inspired to write this poem on watching the song Ude khule aasmano mein parinday (movie - Zindagi na Milegi Dobara) where Kalki's scarf flaps in the wind while she's travelling in the car. That one glimpse was the starting point for this poem.

Really loved the art work and the poem. The spacing and indentation in the poem is unique and I enjoyed the dreaminess of it- I saw a girl with a scarf, a faraway look in her eyes while I read that.
Oh I love that song so much... When I was reading your poem you won't believe I thought of the exact same song... Loved the scarf part... The longingness that the words hold... Brilliantly done.
