Petrichor: The Divine Scent

Brandon J. J. Board

"Petrichor - The Divine Scent" is not just a captivating anthology of poetry and artwork, but a comprehensive educational journey into the intricate world of poetic forms. This book offers both a sensory voyage and a fascinating study of 24 unique poetic styles, each showcasing the deep bond between smell, memory, emotion, and imagination.

Our journey is divided into seven thematic sections, each revolving around a distinct scent-related concept: 'Petrichor, ' 'Piquant, ' 'Cloy, ' 'Sillage, ' 'Fetid, ' 'Nascent, ' and 'Redolent.' Each of these sections is home to seven individual poems, each one showcasing a different poetic form, ranging from sonnets and limericks to free verse and beyond. This offers an enlightening exploration of each form's structure, origin, and application, intensifying the reader's understanding and appreciation of poetic craft. To amplify the sensory immersion, every poem is paired with a piece of carefully curated artwork, forming a harmonious blend of linguistic mastery and visual allure.

Step into the world of 'Petrichor, ' where the nostalgic scent of earth after rain comes alive through a diverse tapestry of poetic forms. Delve into the 'Piquant' realm of spices, where an assortment of poetic styles spark a dance of intensity and warmth. Navigate the 'Cloy' of sweetness and deception, wander through the 'Sillage' of past experiences, brave the 'Fetid' odors of malice and decay, rejoice in the 'Nascent' fragrance of fresh beginnings, and bask in the 'Redolent' aroma of love and remembrance, all the while encountering a myriad of poetic styles.

"Petrichor - The Divine Scent" offers more than a collection of poetry and art; it's an immersive, instructive journey through the universe of scents and verse, promising to resonate with readers long after the final page is turned.
