DAILY POEM "A LONELY FLOWER"


Why did this beautiful flower grow?
amongst the bracken and thickened snow
pert and proud in barren old land
amazed how such a miracle can stand.

All alone a singular treat
void of emotion, treacherous feet
carried by songbirds from a warmer clime
ignorant of wastage and sealed by its prime.

Glowing so colourful sweet smell of perfume
avoiding the vases of humanities front room
grow old my flower be erect and assured
Carry the torch of environments cured.

Warm up my life and make me alive
bloom for eternity, germinate, survive
seed for the pleasure and love that you give
grow for the goodness and promise me “live”.


It goes to show you do not have to have Superpowers to survive!!

what can we do to survive??

  1. The picture is so beautiful, the colors so vibrant, yet the poem over shadows the picture.
    Such beauty and optimism, I saw your flower without looking at the picture. I felt the hope you conveyed.
    Beautiful poem!!
