Short Poetry Contest by Dusita Parfums & Fragrantica 2020 – 2nd Place, Category: Love
I won the 2nd place prize on this worldwide contest organized by Dusita Parfums together with Fragrantica.com -with this Haiku poem. I never finished my review of Oudh Infini because I love it so much (I felt no words of my could do it justice), so I wrote this poem dedicated to it:
Shadows on the wall,
Trembling in the late afternoon.
A farewell embrace.
– Elena C.
