A Chapter by Ana Papaya

she was the last one left standing
   a lone flower, unplucked 
not bright enough, nor pretty enough
whilst standing among the rest
but alone, in her bare garden home
  she was beautiful and alive

But she was beautifully unique. Standing out in the crowd of stepford wife sameness, for those that truly looked. I never pluck personally, as it will only hasten its demise. Much better to be rooted and have a place that eyes that truly see will admire.
Ps...i know! Its still me. Im sure this recent positivity overdose will be over soon. :)

So, I guess it ain't about the ugly bird you see staggering around night club car parks at 2am, having not pulled again, but hoping that the male version of her, him who has consumed enough lager to sate a small African country, will clap eyes on her and make her his bride for the night, just one night, and once through with the sexual gymnastics will hold her as if he cares, even though she knows this not the case, and that he will leave in the morning never to be seen again.

Good evening m'dear, hope you are well.

I see this as the Jane who is does not physically attract, but beyond that is unmatched.
Quite a bit of feeling in this

Hi John, thank you so much. I like the way you see it.
Good to be the last flower. Unwanted and safe. I liked the flow of thoughts leading to a proper ending. Thank you Ana for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are welcome dear Ana.
It is fate that spared the simple flower, to have a better chance at pollination and propagation...( a biologist point of view)! Positively stimulating poetry, Ana.

How very kind.. and how very true.. you just can't be too careful nowadays :)
An amazingly positive message here. Her plainness saved her while for others, their beauty became a curse. Life and living matter, not frivolous beauty. One should be thankful always. Appreciated very much, Ana.

Save the best till last, that's what we did as kids. I'd eat the greens first because I hated them. Your lone flower is a survivor of life. Lovely words Ana.
