Nepenthe: Fictional medicine capable of making one forget suffering. (Greek)

The summer breeze

wafts the fragrance

of gardenias you planted

in the garden.

I drink deep

emboldened

by the nepenthe

to my soul

      That’s a possibility I have not considered. In any case all forgetting of suffering is only temporary if it is induced, I would think.

    A magical elixir, if you will. Sounds good to me!
