Flowers (poem)

To flowers’

Hidden powers

Over special glow

Your smile begins the show

That there’s magic all around

Flowing with kisses which abound

To scent this wonder you sent my way

The greatest Joy I’ve come across today

Witnessing such beauty on display

From ones who slumber near the ground

And sways to the breeze’s sound

It’s better not to know

Why I love you so

Midst the showers

Of the hours

A sigh

Why

      Flowers are so beautiful and so is this poem, Martin. I love the photo of flowers forming a woman's face. Whoever did that is very creative.

      Ah, well, I thought my favorite was your tanka, but now that I've read this beauty ... well, they are different types of poetry, so I have two new favorites here this night! Love the style too and your imagery there of the flowers forming a lovely woman's face with the lips and all ...

      This one is beautiful Martin. I can see how the right magic can make her fall in love and keep someone in entranced with her. I voted up, shared and pinned it.
