My Winter Jasmine

 Evening breeze with beautiful fragrance

Mother, father, laughs

When we gather after dinner

Relaxing after the blaze of sun calms down

Greening bush of the white flowers near by

Laughing with us from the fragrance

That cannot be denied

Oh my Jasmine!

Remembering and longing

For the past of homeland

  My Winter Jasmine 2 

Smelling the beautiful fragrance

That I long for

Far away I know who you are

Your delicate white body

Fresh and dainty

Reminds me of a little wooden house in Thailand

The fragrance gives me peace and happiness

Finding that even with chilled weather outside

I still find you

You are my favorite of all the others

Forgive me for my prejudice

Here you are my lovely Winter Jasmine

Bringing back the past of homeland

  Yesterday I was passing by the plants that I brought inside our apartment to run away from the cold chill weather of winter outside.  I put avocado, hibiscus, Thai citrus, grapefruit plants close together and two jasmine plants on the outside around the others, because the jasmine plant is a shorter bushy plant.  In general the jasmine plants will give out flowers in the hot summer time as a topical plant that grow quite well inThailand.  I smelled a beautiful fragrance that came from the plants area.  To my surprise I stopped by and tried to find the flower.  I know this smell very well since I was young in my homeland,Thailand.  One white flower standing tall alone from the others giving a fragrance that no one will ever pass by.  I showed John the flower as he could not resist putting his Welsh nose right on the petite, delicate white flower. The aroma of it will surpass all the other lovely flowers.  I noticed that there are more than fifty little ones that will blossom by the time of the holiday season.  I consider my self very lucky to have my Winter Jasmine.

 Happy New Year

One, two, three, four, five

Six, seven, eight, nine!!!!!

Nine jasmine flowers!!!!!

Perfuming my room

One jasmine gives a small soft fragrance

Two, three and four blossom at the same time

The fragrance fills my heart

But when nine blossoms come

It is just like a bursting flame

Of firework on the New Year

Let the human race bloom

With peace and happiness

At the same time

Forget all the trouble and hatred

Spread kindness and love for all

As the year ends greet

The New Year with the fragrance of jasmine

Let us blossom into a New Human Race

That nature wants us to be
