And the Day Came...

Summer Flower Shy

 

 

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

--- ELIZABETH APPEL

 

 

Summer Flowers 2017

 

Have you ever noticed that every flower embodies aspects of you,

your timidness; then hopes to blossom into something bigger

and brighter, more beautiful and shy, why?

 

The spirit of springtime comes alive when flowers bloom,

then tested by rain, wind, and fire. In the midst of

every other day flowers change from radiant to loneliness

just watch the petals hide their face, why?

 

Softness turns brittle over time, it's one of those changes

that can not  be denied, but why can't things stay the same?

Does the flower beg, pick me!

Take care of me or does it give up, why?

 

Could a smile help a flower grow bigger, better,

bolder, and would a flower feel brand new?

Flowers are a random act of kindness to mankind.

They stimulate people to be kind, give pleasure, pick flowers

for they are pick-me-uppers with no strings attached, why?

 

Scatter seeds from the sunflower and birds come,

butteflies too, and of course there's me and you,

We are thankful for flowers to which rarely

do we give thanks to Mother Nature, why?

 

Imagine a world without flowers,

I would cry. Would the world turn out hard and cruel,

prickly like cacti? I would simply die, how about you?

Gabe Sanders - I think you have the perfect name, one I rarely hear or see written in modern books. I have a feeling your mother was very special and someone who rooted you in truth and beauty. I just feel that, that's all.

Amanda S. Davidson - "Sad & Gloomy," is not attractive. Be the flower in other people's life and give them cheer!

Have an extraordinary day!

Patricia,  I cannot imagine a world without flowers, trees and all things green and good or a world without animals.  They balance the world with humankind.

Lovely essay and sentiment, Patricia; however, I would be remiss if I didn't point out that cacti are not necessarily hard and cruel, and cacti produce flowers, too. :)
