scented

instead of lavender

my hands smell of lemon thyme and garlic chives

and will soon be perfumed with ginger

the seasonings for dinner

a meal he usually cooks

tonight they will flavor my food

coating my hands and soothing my soul

just a bit

the familiar scents of togetherness

while I eat alone

as he travels the world without me
