Flower In The Mud (poem)

Amid the blackened mud a flower grew

Reminder of a time that couldn’t last

A lover’s passion burning way too fast

This flower bears the madness they went through


Oh flower of such kisses from the past

What feelings fostered fate of lovers two

One wonders now if even they then knew

Speak flower any scent which you may cast


A sunny day they say when couple met

To air some darkness brewing in their mind

Resulting in a flower in the mud


What followed was a scene of deep regret

As blow by blow soft words became unkind

Resulting in a flower in the blood

Awesome poem. A little more than a lovers tiff.

My goodness, but what a great movie this would make - ever consider selling movie rights to some of your poems? The music is fabulous and the picture is perfect. Voted up.

Music sets just the right tone. Haunting.

Lovely is all I can say. I love the way nature has been brought into this love poem (even though there is a sad tone to it). Beautifully versed.

Ann wrote selling movie rights to some of your poems would be a good idea. I agree with her. Your poems are exactly what she said they are. She just described them better then I did.

Great poem. Even the most famous lovers had arguments. Love the picture it conjures up of a flower crushed in mud brings the truth so much more closer.

You can even make a lovers argument beautiful.

Some loves were never meant to be. Passion can be a wonderful thing, but it can also be dangerous.
