Fragrance as a source of inspiration
I sit at the terrace of a café nestled in Shanghai old French Quarter. Holding a bunch of white roses I am waiting for her. I yearn to capture her heart. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t.
She rides her bicycle in the Shikumen* lane. Her slender figure and long black hair catch my eyes. Nail polish and ribbons lovingly matched with her flower-print dress. In the pristine spring light she seems to float along, dream-like.
Later I gently touch her hand. Eyes closed, I breathe her sweet and fruity perfume. When she speaks, the rest of the World is silent to me...
* Shikumen is a traditional Shanghainese architectural style combining Western and Chinese elements
