           Jasmine

The earth has breath night blooming
so fair her night turns light within

Through the heat of day she has waited
the changing
then finds some sleep drenched man
half undone   wanting

The light of air so sweetly seeds discovery
no moon will despair the grace one gives another

She appears with her shiver true
and topples the fence and the window screen
following the sheets in rumpled sleep to a dream
I dream of you

With her instinct made from purity
she knows that distance is man made
and so she magic melts both time and place
making together lift the longing
with just one breath

She has the effect,
and you have the way.

I've tried before, to capture the essence of this flower with my words....and failed. Here, you bring it real with a wave of your hand.

As with any poem of course, and almost any flower, there's more here than scent...there are traces of every kind, and they are good.
