After the rain III

After the rain
mock orange flowers
spread their fragrance
for some hours
Wish that I could
share with you
the bouquet there
that will ensue
But I cannot
save in this line
assure you that
it is divine

A pleasing distraction – sedoka

On cold winter days
for a pleasing distraction
the thought of Springtime flowers

Caught on a warm breeze
to embellish me with their
wonderful fragrant bouquet
