Wednesday #limerick: fragrant, jostle, remnant

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick using the words from Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: fragrant, jostle, remnant.

An uncovered remnant, white lace;
My old life, brought close my face.
Her fragrant perfume
Can an old love exhume,
And jostle what I've tried to erase.

  2. Surely you weren't being sentimental! A sentimental limerick! Quite a change.

  5. This is just sweet. Hope that word isn't to corny. I liked it very much. Sometimes this kind of "jostle" really startles us :-) Nicely done.

  6. Love the conjured image of lace and scent of perfume - very evocative. Have a small quibble with the crowded scansion of the last line, but nice work overall.

    1. Thanks! Others have heard a hiccup in that last line, too, something which escaped me when I wrote it this morning. Must reconsider.

  10. Love the image! As Kim Nelson also wrote, we wrote about a lingering fragrance left by a loved one, and one who is lost (or saved????)
