Sachet In Secret Places

Sniff deep of me,

for I am the white
five point cluster
whose fragrance wafts
on a soft southern

of lazy afternoons
I border verandas,
sips of iced tea
or mint juleps.

This evening
it is the sun
who is ephemeral
and dips
behind mauve
and coral clouds;

my bouquet lingers,
covertly smiles
and drifts citrus scent;

unseen, my aroma will sachet
itself through your window
inundate senses,

perfume erogenous places
where once pale laced
hankies secretly slept
or a sensuous hand
slyly crept.

I am Magnolia.
