Blossom In The Sun (poem)

Updated on August 2, 2012

A flower in a pasture far away

Amid its time it blossomed in the sun

It never was a threat to anyone

In mindless mist it chose to spend its day


When other flowers gambit they would run

What purpose would be served its heart would say

When other flowers fought to find a way

It sat and moped a lifestyle it would shun


A field of flowers paradise for some

Each adds a unique something to the air


Some flowers cause a lover’s heart to hum

Some even bless the fashion lovers wear


While other’s seed awaited time to come

It died and nothing knew that it was there

      Beautiful and melancholy, M. It reminds me of the story of the eagle and turkey vultures. The eagle never knew he was an eagle because he was raised with the turkey vultures.

      Beautiful. When you think about it there are many flowers growing in the wild that blossom each year and die and no one knows anything about them.

      I have a question. Have you ever published a poem book? Your could you know. Every poem you have every written have been incredible. You could probably do so. Just a thought.

      Beautiful and a little sad, it made me think.

      If a rose bloomed but was never seen or appreciated did it exist? sometimes beauty just is, a light shone in a small corner for a short while and the world was a little more colorful.

      A great lesson of life! It's not where you start or finish, but how you, as an individual among many, affect others along the way!

      Great Job!

      Another great hub, Mhatter! I guess it would make a flower proud to be noticed by mankind --it would have served it's purpose.
