Three Haiku and Shalimar


I was first introduced to the fragrance Shalimar at the time of my wedding. A business colleague of my new husband sent me a bottle of this perfume, that was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1921, as a wedding gift. I’ve used it constantly all these years and still have the original bottle given to me in 1942.

When people greet me, they say, “You smell of Shalimar.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard them tell me “My mother wore the same perfume.”

Three Haiku

How quietly and wisely
The owl watches the world
and never moves

The snow is quiet
and cold
as is the wise owl

Winter is snow
a time to be wise
like the owl
