Cyclical Smells of Color

The original natives of this area had a word for the color of nature. The color spans from yellow, through green to brown. These colors were all called lane, pronounced closer to "lonnie".

Newly sprouted plants in the spring are lane in color, but so are the dead ones in the fall.

Odoriferous chemicals released by plants when they pollinate are also released when bodies decompose. Conception can smell the same as death. Maybe that means nothing, or maybe it closes the figure eight of everything.
