    of winning that prize.

    The bottle is mine
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    I think the posts would be of more substance if each poster was only allowed 1 haiku.

    Yeah I agree - Maybe in order to be eligible, the posters should select just one haiku, and edit out the rest. We all want a shot!

    ink flows from our pens
    black drops spray forth in passion
    perfuming the night
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Oh what shall I do?
    Half the candy still remains,
    Trick-or-treaters few!

    Junior Mints and gummy eyes
    All, my diet mock

    What harm can there be
    In a little candy corn
    Or a Kit-Kat bar?

    Only candy that I hate
    But tonight, I feast!

    What is it to love?
    To be delighted in the hapiness of others.
    Why is evil this rough?
    To contrast good and evil in another.
    But then.. philosopher... why does it exist?
    For good to shine, and forever to persist!
    Philosopher.. do we know by reason in itself?
    Knowledge is like beauty hidden in a shelf.
    Why is knowledge hidden?
    in nature, naturalistic truths are nearly forbidden.
    So tell me then, philosopher... what is there beyond nature?
    The metaphysical form of the good by senses making its waiture.
    So how do you define an ethical base to life?
    My student.. forvever living by olfactory gift.

    Hmm i'm drunk, i'll update it further tomorrow. I want the scent and i have some literary talent

    The sea is blue, the
    Fern is green. And your boy Red
    Needs Fougères Marines.

    But sea can be green
    Ferns brown and dead. So Steam Aoud
    You can give to Red.

    Your tale is out of this world,
    Montale is Oud of
    Unspoken tales of roses.

    Notice I have willfully inverted the 5-7-5 into a 7-5-7 structure, but then English syllables don't really correspond to Japanese "Moren" anyway.
