The Gift of the Gardenia

Once upon a time while walking in the park
I thought of gardenia and of its marvelous smell
I slowly closed my eyes to dream of its beauty
The world was suspended for a moment in time

The gardenia heard me and responded in kind
Its perfume was then sent spiraling by my side
I deeply inhaled it and deeply inhaled it
And I happily thanked it for this wonderful gift
