Petrichor

though I know there are many mysteries about you
but there is this one thing that always keeps me on my toes
everytime when my sludgy white
mixes with your thick red
the aftereffect surprises me like hell.
When I smell petrichor, I wonder
how do you manage to smell
like that every time?
as if it was the maiden rain over you
how?

    Now you surprised me……
    What really happens when white and red mix together? I assume it becomes a colour of alluring pink? πŸ™‚
