any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
I love the sense of tranquility in the smell of flowers .. Very nice indeed.
What a lovely garden!!
Do you really have all these different jasmines in your garden? Lucky, lucky you - that almost hypnotic smell... Gorgeous - and how they bring a sense of coolness to the summer heat.
This is lovely, Sumana. I have been in India in summer, and you describe so well the heavy relief of night--the way that it holds the fragrance of these beautiful flowers--lovely. Thanks. k.
their scented greetings...ah they are beautiful maidens ....and oh do they smell good...ah i bet your flowers are amazing...i like your names for them as well.
There is a very restful kind of beauty portrayed in your poem, Sumana.
this was like a gentle breeze... loved the maidens
I love the idea of fragrant nights, something I have never experienced here.
Yes, yes. Sitting on the steps in the dark or moonlight as many nights as night-blooming Jasmine is willing to stay. Such a healing joy in Berkeley during the 5 years it took me to complete my education.
Gandharaj*, Beli** and Juin***... nice.. love the names... and oh jasmine is a beautiful scented summer flower - almost intoxicating
Your slant/near rhymes are perfection, & your night-blooming message & meditation is tre-lovely. Such a sweet & exotic moment you shared with us within the bevy of B-rhymes.
White fragrant night - what a lovely thought - delicate, and yet haunting lines.
I love these flowers and have pots of them on my balcony. Beautiful verse.
