Smells of {Spring in Charleston}

softly falling rain in the bird fountain
minty lantana leaves as toy trucks brush by
heady carolina jasmine in strangers' yards
dirt on my babies' heads
green grass on our picnic quilts
sea salt through the car windows on our beach drive
sour watermelon dried in Boston's skin
tangy apple juice on our fingers
clean sweat in August's hair
purified wind from the air conditioner
