The Goldilocks Scent

This room in the Mansion is located between the bathrooms and the Arboretum.

The wall to the right is of glass entire and looks out to ponds, to their sweet water, and the flowers between them.  Three beds back into the wall to the left.  Each mattress exudes its own scent.  The perfume insinuates dreams and lidded eyes.

Sleep comes swiftly upon laying your head on the bed nearest the entrance, despite the perfume’s tang.  Nameless menace limns your dreams.  Sleep comes slowly on the bed furthest the door; it’s saccharine perfume faintly stings your eyes.  Jumbled phantasms flub within skull.

The bed between them is the best.  Its scent is sweetest.  Afterwards, you hardly distinguish the last waking memory from the first dreaming moment.  Synaesthetic vistas ornament your rest, coherent and benevolent.
