Lavender mist

I understand smell is the only unmediated sense we have. It goes directly to the brain. This morning I woke up with lavender and thoughts of my daughter in Scotland. Maybe I should be smelling heather, but I do not know if heather has a smell. Instead I smell lavender and go to find the lavender spray.

I lie in bed,
My eyes shut,
The covers pulled tight.
I smell lavender
Even though
There is no logical place
The smell comes from.
I remember my daughter
Now in Scotland.
She sprays lavender mist
When she is here.
I smell lavender.
I go in search
Of the bottle of lavender spray
So I can continue
