Finding Fragrance

Finding Fragrance

A Poem by willweb

It sits upon my window sill,

after all of this time,

the Magnolia bloom you sent

Wilted and shriveled,

once the purest white -

browned with age

Yet what it is,

is just as beautiful

as what it was

 

      We all age, change

    collecting wrinkles and new colors

    staring in the mirror

    wondering, where did we go

    how could this happen

    it was just yesterday we were - young

  

Though as I tenderly hold, lift

this flower I know

it still retains

a hint of fragrance,

that sweet aroma of love,

the essence of that day

and its loveliness remains

as if time has no meaning

 

      We need not look any further

      than this alluring scent

      to know that a bloom

      will forever be as beautiful

      as every yesterday

      it was shared

 

You are beautiful -

we are all beautiful

Open your eyes,

find the fragrance

You are beautiful -

Open your eyes,

This was lovely looking where beauty
still lays this was beautiful.




Thank you for sharing a Elegant piece.

What this seems to say to me is accept aging with grace, and if you love someone, they stay beautiful as they age ... Nicely done.

i think lovely is more inside...people are always trying to change appearance to seem younger than they are...but a flower wilted still has the inside of the beauty it once exhibited---and we can still see it within.
