Winter Jasmine Is Blossoming
By Sophy Chen ***
According to the practice of previous years, today is February 14
The Valentine’s Day, he always buys two or three white roses
But now where can we buy roses? All people are trapped at home
In the remote countryside, no one sells flowers and all people are not allowed to go out
Bus stops, taxi stops, Didi stops, and private cars also...
People who walked to market came back and said village gate was welded with iron gates
By the way, the express delivery has also stopped so we cannot buy online either!
Suddenly I remembered the winter jasmine on my great-grandfather’s grave
Presumably they should be blossoming! I took my camera
Stepping on dead leaves and dry weeds of sloping road, up a big slope
And when we feel hot, we finally arrives at the grave
Weeds on head of the grave, several bare and verdant
Winter jasmine branches are particularly eye-catching, and their sparse buds are budding
Unexpectedly there is a small flower bursting out of the bud
The yellowish small flower is full of energy in the haystack
We finally took a sigh of relief ...
In this cold, dry, blocking, and suffocating air
The winter jasmine is finally blooming and blooming in this no roses spring
