I Smelled The Forest Jasmine - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

I smelled the forest jasmine,
wild but profound in its perfume.
My bones filled with the perfume
spread on my being to wake me from my dreams.

I heard the silent music of the night
and felt it kissing my lips softly.
In my heart there were rhythms
unheard of before.

My limbs moved
to a song and its rhythms
and I felt the softness of the petals
of the sweet smelling jasmine.

    A very beautiful poem, Dr. Anthony! .
    Jasmine is a flower adored specially by the women of south India.
    The ladies love to adorn it in their hair. The photograph of the wild Jasmine flower is excellent.
    I loved the way you have portrayed your emotion for this fragrant flower with an element of music
    and rhythm to it.
    Nature and flowers are my favourites tooI I have been planning to write one poem on Jasmine for a long while
    but have not reached there yet. Felt so good reading your poem.
