races heartbeat rapid,
flame of incandescent silence,
pink, magenta, yellow, engulfs,
as darkness awakens,
night jasmine blooms,
Poetry form :- Butterfly Cinquain ( 2/4/6/8/2/8/6/4/2 syllables)
Thoughts :- I am not sure of the English name/ Botanical name for flowers in the above picture. So, I’ve gone with the colloquial name for the flowers which translates as Evening/Night Jasmine. These flowers bloom around evening and last till the next morning. They are fragile but heavily fragrant and come in a variety of colours like light pink, magenta, yellow.
