Lovely images....enjoyed especially thinking of the 'scent of twilight.'

Magaly Guerrero said...

Dressing in a kimono is a very difficult task... If she has to hide, so that only the "blossom's fragrance" see her back, I wonder who she is trying to hide from.

The second piece made me think of Jasmines in the night. And with the kimono piece preceding it, I couldn't help but picture Geisha on their way to entertain others...

Happy Women's Day to you, too!

I don't believe I've ever smelled a jasmine! I like the idea of flowers at the front gate--it's very welcoming.
