Jasmine – July 23, 2015

spring’s delight
the jasmine bush blooms
perfumed nights

tiny white flowers
cascading around the door
fresh jasmine tea

spring morning
lingering jasmine perfume
wafting with the breeze
each petal a memory
of the night that they shared

scent of Jasmine
sound of a gurgling brook
peace of mind

shaded by blossoms
it is like song in a play
resting on a journey

buds huddle by day
fragrance comes alive at night
affair with the moon
