Fragrance of words

Fragrance of words

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

One doesn't need a rose to express their love

"
FRAGRANCE OF WORDS
Wrinkled, delicate, but most beautiful  
The petals of a flower appear,   
Soft as the touch of a wool    
Flowers are always dear.   
Trapped inside a book    
One preserves them for remembrance,   
Behold the beauty; have a look   
Also, pleasing is its fragrance.  
Many flowers, for different occasion 
Symbolise death and also passion,  
They bring joy to our hearts without any reason  
Everblooming they are, filled with compassion.  
Detached from the stem, petals lay above,
Does one need a rose to express their love?

Author's Note

Najam Us Saher
My idea to write this poem is to appreciate the beauty of a flower and also to convey a message that one doesn't need a rose to express their love. No doubt flowers symbolise passion but that's not necessary to express the depths of love.
A flower's beauty is more when it is surrounded by its leaves and natural environment, not by plucking it to appreciate its beauty.

A bunch of 12 red roses (Israeli Gold Standard) this year at St Valentine's cost me £50 !!
They lasted 9 days in a vase - she told me. I think the flowers=romance scam has gone too far.
Words are much cheaper and of course more personal. Nicely done N.

Thank you so much.
This is absolutely beautiful. The delicacy in your expression, the tenderness and wisdom in your words, even the image and visual presentation make this piece shine. I love your message, but I love how you expressed it even more. True, flowers are beautiful, but true love is found in one's own heart, not in any material thing, whether it be man-made or from nature. I love how your final two lines illustrate that point perfectly ... they were absolutely brilliant.
My only quibble is your author's note: Though this piece follows the same rhyme scheme as a Shakespearean Sonnet, it doesn't use iambic pentameter, so I'm not sure if I'd consider this a Shakespearean Sonnet. It is, nevertheless, still a beutiful work, so for that, BRAVO!

nice one..Indeed words are more precious and convey a deeper meaning of love than flowers and yes.. the real love for flower's beauty s when one allows it to grow and not when one plucks it..

Yes that is indeed right. Actions and words are far better in showing affection and love. Just like what a certain quote says, "Love is not about possession but appreciation."
