Nightbloom By Jude Kyrie The welcoming perfumes of spring are thick upon this night. And we shall be friends this night and me. The dampened sweetness of a lover's hair is now in the front of my memory. Senses overpowered by its fragrance. No sleep can disturb this awakening. the Nectar of gods pouring its heady brew. Filling my glass to the brim. Intoxicating me beyond wine. Immobile as I stand by the gate, watching the bloom of silvered moonlight. illuminating the tangled brambles of the wild clematis. Drinking deeply, the rest of the sweetness of this nightbloom.
