Jasmine

My favourite smell in the world is the scent of Jasmine in the air before it rains.

It reminds me of my youth, sitting on my bed beside an open window, drinking in the feelings of first love.

When all of life’s possibilities layed themselves out like a blanket of stars and hope held my hand.

Jasmine is and will always be the scent of the ethereal in my life.

  1. beautifully written: I love ‘.laid themselves out like a blanket of stars’; not a word wasted; you’ve given me an idea for a poem — my favourite smell; I’m giving some thought to it now πŸ™‚

  2. This one is so beautiful… love the whole thing but this line especially: “When all of life’s possibilities layed themselves out like a blanket of stars and hope held my hand.”
