Weeds

A Poem by Fran Marie
"

Beauty can be found even in the lowly weeds

"

 




Rapidly weeds grow
 
        denied scents of love's sweet rose
 
                                wild beauty unknown

This touched me beyond the clear divide generally drawn between those plants we would call beautiful flowers and those we would dismiss as weeds. It is an interesting statement on how far reaching our views of beauty reach when one only considers the external features of a particular item - whether plant or person. Somebody shared a quote somebody had made about patience making a woman beautiful in middle age or something like that, and I had to disagree. Patience makes her patient. She is beautiful if that is how she feels. While there is no doubt we all have that idea of what we find to be attractive, what does attraction really have to do with beauty...?

I like the idea of weeds asking to smell nice, but being denied, perhaps weeds are jealous of the sweet rose. Well penned.

Perfect capture of the often forgotten plants.
I always find weeds have more beauty because they naturally belong, and have to be resilient to grow, where as neat flower beds don't have the same character.
The last line, "wild beauty unknown", sums it up beautifully.

I too have a take on weeds, if you look at Canto II of "Three At Lunch". I'm so thrilled to see a true Haiku, standing free and proud in it's elegant obscurity. Beautiful!
