Gardenia - Poem by Oscar Robles

It dissipates through the air
Gently teasing your nose
A fragrance so lovely
Grabbing as it goes
Its beauty so dazzling
That you can’t even see
But a mural so enormous
Is what it brings to me
The scent of a Gardenia
Filled with memories
Applied very lightly
To one’s porcelain skin
Ambience of invisible beauty
A love trail begins
The scent of Gardenia
Filled with memories
An aroma so blinding
That of romantic power
Only but a shrub
Not even a flower
The scent of Gardenia

    A good poem about gardenias. My mother
    have a tall tree with scented flowers like this in
    her yard. The aroma is so powerful it's almost
    like an aphrodisiac. Just sitting on the porch and
    smelling it's aroma brings back memories of
    days past. Enjoyed!
