Loads of Fragrance


Jasmine* blooms

and small white flowers,

like twinkling stars,

make their appearance…show up

in the dark night, offering

a simple, modest smile, and

loads of fragrance, intoxicating,

to satiate our smell buds…senses,

and forget the rest for a while.


The sleepy creeper

all of a sudden awakens, turns so alive

craving, seeking attention

of all nocturnal passers by,

and successfully so, 

feeling blessed!
