I ran out and clipped off five blossoms and brought them into my kitchen placing them in a shallow dish half filled with tap water. Just the right little pick me up!
White Gardenia Night
Gardenias saturate the night,
clothed in their array of lovely white.
Their fragrance permeates the nose,
and far outshines the perfect rose.
White Gardenias take me there,
while I sit upon my chair.
And listen to the crickets play,
in their orchestrative way.
I feel blessed to be,
alone in my revelry,
on a White Gardenia night!
