This is about my Dad who passed away in 1998. The pipes now belong to my son.


By: Elizabeth Dunaj

The room smelled sweet
A cherry blend
That came from a pipe
Held by its end.

This room full of smoke
Was always seen
Made from a man
Some thought was mean.

But I knew better
Deep in my heart,
This man was full of love
Right from the start.

He'd smoke that pipe
To relax and unwind,,
From a very noisy factory
He worked at a long time.

Now the pipe sets idle
no more smoke is seen
but the cherry blend smell
is in every beam.

Isn't it odd, how a mundane object can bring
back so many memories? I loved having my Mom's
coat, which kept the smell of her cologne and
cigarettes for a while. It was so comforting.

My uncle was a pipe smoker, his house always smelled of his blend too...thanks for the memories...(my pipe has a bit of a different blend in it...;) Ed
