Twilight calls in soft floral amber lights,
Delicate in the scent of memory,
To fragile bowers of fragrant delights -
Saffron smiles wrapped in scented mystery.
Sinuous silk plumerias of myrrh
‘Twine satin fingertips ‘neath musky mantles
When gossamer hues of incense demur
Bluebellvines bloom in soft chimes with candles.
Tender scents of tuberose, sweet jasmine,
Float from this shy perfumed garden glen
Petals spread wide as lotus buds begin
To welcome gentle moonbeams touch again.
Trembling seeds arouse spice scents on bloom's skin
As in pure union harmony ascends.
