When it rains
if you are tired
if you are lucky enough
you will be sat
by a window
have an uncluttered view:
all those little drops will stitch together
make a covering
autumn's rain has a spice
a fallen leaf musk:
you will breathe it
hear the rustle of it
let your eyes close.

Fallen leaf musk. How very perfect a description.

Some of the nature smells aren't so pleasant! Fallen leaves' scents are imbued with memories of fruit picking and getting ready for winter festivals, pleasant on all levels :-)
