    late bloomers ...
    brighten dreary autumn day


    ageless tree before me
    passing time sighs -
    seasons come and go

    excerpt: "poet's jasmine"

    jasmine, white clusters, rich fragrance, so sweet
    i'm under her power, mere flower
    i long for the hour, there at her lofty height
    before twilight holding her, within sight
    what is she doing to my mind ...
