Lost in the grace of soft white

petals soft like butter fill the hand

heavenly scent of delight

a gift of one from the mystery.

Gardenia bloom hidden behind

glimpse of white brought forward to see

like a shy child awkward in her beauty

unsure in a wash of green.

First borne of the new addition

her siblings wait until their time

beneath a spring sun they will come forth

and share their gift to eyes and a scent

to carry on soft winds on balmy nights

slipping in quietly through the window to find

the dream swept souls beyond the wall.

This is our mystery gardenia….not sure why they call it a mystery but it did give one bloom yesterday that smells so heavenly. I couldn’t help but to share. We planted it beneath the bedroom window so as it grows taller, it will find us in our sleep, kissing us perhaps with sweetest scented dreams. There are other buds so more or on the way, a happy thing indeed.

  2. I enjoyed the poetic descriptions and lovely way you give us your “firstborn” gardenia. It is a beautiful, elegant way to show us, both in photo and words, Kim. โค

  7. we bought three, two mystery ones (that’s what it’s called) and then another one. The one I really loved was an Aimee gardenia? but had toxic elements and with the pets running around close by, didn’t want to take any chances. I hope yours blooms for you โค they do smell so lovely. Makes me smile just thinking about them.

  8. I love the dreaminess of your writing. You remind me or a gardenia I have in my garden that hasn’t bloomed in a while but you’ve reminded me of the scent on the breeze of a warm enchanted evening.๐Ÿ˜€
