Her words rose before me,

Like blossoms of the Heart.

Adorned with an array of diamond lanterns,

They shimmered in their lustre;

Danced in the splendour of my Soul.

An ever-resplendent Light descended,

Like raindrops from Heaven.

Only to garland the petals of my Spirit,

Thus replenishing it with new life.

Like celestial orchids, the song of Her words,

Rose to greet me in their eloquence.

I drank from Her sweet pen,

A perennial vintage, soaked in an ever-effulgent Light;

I reeled in drunken rhapsody, to the magic of Her words.

      A great tribute to a great lady. I like Nellieanna's poetry and admire her very much with awe. I went through her blog also some months back. She is not coming nowadays here. I hope she is doing well.

      Thank you, thank you, and so happy that you graced my page. Yes, blossoms, they are a part of the esoteric language like 'birds' and Light ...

      The comparison of words with blossoms of the heart is very meaningful. The poem illustrates it very well, and makes a beautiful tribute.
