One Flower Wish

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Exquisitely beautiful,

perfection bar none,

the flower unfurling,

bequeathed by the sun,

immersed in the nutrients

of a giving rich earth,

in the tears of the angels,

the petals do search,

in colours so vibrant,

in such delicate form,

drenched in gold sunlight,

lives to be born,

the flower, its yearning,

to seed life and explore,

the passions of beauty

and in itself become more.


The flower awakens,

when light beckons its all,

to open its heart,

for the glorious orb,

and a radiant flower

surrenders its seed,

for life to propagate,

and in harmony to be,

while the buzzing of insects,

all busy at work,

a warm gentle breeze,

whispers pleasures alert,

and each day its joyous

perfection ensues,

the glory of living,

and the beauty of truth.


One flower wishes,

no more than its fate,

to bask in its beauty,

and for no-one forsake,

just to be all that

beauty can be,

like heaven on earth,

for beholder to see,

and when the light finally fades

and darkness imbues,

those petals retract,

and a deep sleep ensues,

until once again,

that beckoning orb,

welcomes beauty to life,

and a flower restore.



Nature in all its glory, shows us the way.
