The Flowers in the Window Box

The Flowers in the Window Box

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ for Lydi ~

"

art ~ Vicente Romero

 

 

The flowers in the window box are blooming

Bright smiles beckon as if they were to say

the sound of raindrops you hear resuming

are timeless traces of another day

 

And in the past when a lonely raindrop

left a chill upon dreams, the window pane

was cold and damp but now the rain has stopped

It’s time to dry the teardrops that remain

 

Though vision blurs there’s still unseen beauty

gentle in it’s embrace, much like sunbeams

weaving soft rays of light, so you can see

the colors of a rainbow paint your dreams

 

There won’t be rain today or tomorrow

for blooming in the window box…a flower

 

~ Sonnet ~

The poem conjures up delightful visions in my head. I LOVE the pictures you use above the poems BUT Are they creating subconscious imageries before I have a time to read your words. Ummmmm ?

Small items of beauty can awake us from a dead sleep. No weakness in the amazing poetry.

You bio said that your poetry wasn't original. This poem completely contradicts that! It's lovely, in the truest sense of the word.

You are very kind. Thank you for the wonderful comment :) Julie
A gorgeous, spectacular poem. I loved the use of the flower. Had no choice but to add this to my favorites. Incredibly well done!

However, I'm not sure flower and tomorrow rhyme. Maybe, you can try "And yet now fresh remains this dying hour."

Just suggestions. Still, this was amazing and beautiful.
