Be That Flower That We See

Men are just so blind.

They wander to and fro.

They like what they find.

They just do not know,

How or when to say,

The words you need to hear,

They see a sweet bouquet,

But their thoughts aren't crystal clear.

They're awkward and they stumble.

They often drop the ball.

And love they often fumble.

Sometimes pride is their downfall.

But dear girl make no mistake,

If given half the chance,

That chance he'd surely take,

If you'd join him in a dance.

He's clumsy and unsure,

Of how he'll be received,

But often his heart is pure,

And often he's been deceived.

But you are a beautiful flower.

This you cannot hide.

And if he had the power,

He'd be right by your side.

So be that flower that we see,

And love with all your heart.

And if you grant this plea,

Your prince will never part.

~Micky Dee~

As I visited ariasnote I read If Only I Could See...

and I was inspired to write

"Be The Flower That We See".

You are amazing, Uncle. I thought we love flower as the most beautiful god creation. We can enjoy this from the color, shape, fragrance. By seeing the flower, we may get a lot of inspiration like creating a beautiful poem. Thank you very much. Happy New Year 2011.

Your poetry is not afraid to show the vulnerability, hesitation and hurts from the past that are part of the fear we all conquer to take a leap of faith into love. Beautifully said and the paintings are telling me to get out my brushes, oils and canvases and create some flowers of my own. Awesome, Micky Dee

Cool, Micky - and yes, unfortunately, all men are blind. Not really - and the fact that you write about them being blind says that you're not!

Beautiful tribute to a new hubber, Micky Dee. Wow!! I'm so impressed. You do such nice things for others! You are the unforseen flower in the garden of life. Great poem, really! :D Perhaps you are even that one and only four leaf clover, waiting to be plucked for good luck!

ariasnote 6 years ago

Micky Dee...I don't deserve such praise through such a beautiful poem. I am blushing as well as pleased. If I were wearing a vest with buttons, they would certainly be popping off. Thanks so much for the beautiful, awesome poem!!! You are a very, special friend. A great poet too! Love you! (you know, as a fellow hubber) : )

Oh how a adore flowers of all sorts

from the plant which they grow

not cut pruned and in a vase

I love the flowers where they grow

as I walk amoung them the magic more pure.

Great poem dear Micky,

The best way to give a girl flowers is to take her for a walk among them in a vast and vibrant garden! Love and Peace :) Katie

God bless you sage barefoot wahine!

You are so very kind charmgirl.

Yo shygirl! Thank you for showing the love to a new hubber.

Oh ariasnote! You certainly are deserving! As I've said - you inspired me to write it. I have no idea when or sometimes why I write a poem and then a tribute hub. You inspired me to write. I sat there at your hub and I wrote a line and then another and another. You were my muse and I thank you and your words for inspiring mine. It is best that we love each other as hubbers - I'm much better on the wide wide world of webs than I am in person. God bless!

Beautiful poem Katie! I love it! You are the poetess! God bless you Katie!

Yo TattooGuy! That's the one I've been waiting on!!!!

how does one capture the beauty if the inside of a tulip with two lips, or tame a dandy lioness, or make a girl a mum someday. Words are elusive..the pots grasp the loveliness in verbs and adjectives, but it takes a warm and loving heart to actually hold such joy, superb work Mickey Dee..I hope you find a flower to share this with soon~~~Your bro~~MFB III

Denizee 6 years ago

What a beautiful poem! The photos enhance this piece with great visuals. It's so true men and women think differently but they give it their best to try and understand us and we should look to the good in their hearts and look past any flaws. Women have them too.

Voted up!

I thought of this again and had to come back and read it.

It's so beautiful and oh so true, I get it now men do flitter about and jump on the kind response of their more delicate counter parts...

So, it dawned on me their looking seeking someone to love and adore a someone to focus all their attentions on, we woman often over look that as a player... but in reality they are eager to find a girl to love and adore! This is my favorite poem, it took me a while but it hit me, I got it and now get it. Thanks for sharing such powerful truths and secrets of a mans heart.

Well done! :) Katie
