Poets have been writing about flowers since, oh, the dawn of time. So today, I challenge you to add your own poem to this long tradition, by finding a flower, and versifying in its honor. Happy writing!
Orchids~ the Flower of Magnificence’
wast thou created for death
or scented magic spells for lovers
what color yellow purple is this?
what lies beneath the tender petals
The Magnificent created the Magnificence
soft silky soothing crown like
pure in silent laughing innocence
royal in form majestic in style,stay’
O Flower a while while I hold thee
in my vision,rest you in memory making jealous
cousins lilies and irises,natural is but jealousy
and if you had a voice to speak, would it be soft and silky too
what would you say,Oh lovers of Flowers listen, huskiness
flows as the column shakes,beautiful chimes it makes
that touch the inner recesses of the invisible spirit
restless as someone says…but wait..life is short
the colors fade..return to the Magnificent
who Magnificence made..flowers appear,born again
gone is the pain as purple reigns,same again….
O Flower I love thee as you I find,many I left behind
look not the other way,for soon Spring is hot in May
April away,stay,stay,smile awhile,as I thank’ and pray’
