Jasmine flowers exhale
perfume along mossen lattice sanctuary
We smell the sweet sighs
but only bumblebees hear
the oxygen escape their silken throats

Editing stage: 


Very anthropomorphic
anatomically absurd and great write.
It leaves a feeling of insane tropics.
I hear bees with elephant ears enjoying
an atonal symphony of oxygen
escaping non-existent lungs
of Jasmin plants,
the sweet smell confined
in the moss-lined tiny space.
Is it imavinary or real?
Something in between.


Thanks so much for the read and the kind words. I love to see how you imagine it! I couldn't hope for better!

Take care,
