On this day – January 12th

Six years ago the winter flowering jasmine brightened my day. It still does…

I have substituted the old (borrowed) photo for one taken of a few stems picked this morning.

January 12th 2013

Six joyful lemon petals
Like a flowering trumpet
Blazoning bright music
From bare sparse stalks.
Your happy tune sings –
Cheerier, in the dull drab day.

Such a contrast after yesterday’s light and sunshine, today is very dark, wet and feels so heavy. But then the odd brightnesses stand out all the more.
