Love is like a flower

Love is like a flower

A Poem by Micco Gibson

Love is like a flower

 

 

A seed in the ground; potential planted

Nutrients in the soil; fulfillment granted

Rain falling from the sky; liquid hope

Sunlight shining from above; helps it cope

 

 

The seed sprouts a stem; high expectations

The stem grows leaves; we find relations

The leaves develop veins; deeper meanings

The veins connect each side; sharing feelings

 

 

Then the bulb finally blooms; spreading wide

The beauty unfolds; emotions rising like high tide

The petals dyed with color; those beautiful hues

They layer upon one another; eachother they won't lose

 

 

Silently rumbling in the distance

A storm of fear destroying existence

It may come and wash the flower away

But if it lives it will grow taller another day

 

 

Eventually the storm will pass

Floating away its black mass

Together the sun, soil, and rain

Will bring this beautiful flower back again

 

 

More powerful and resilient than before

There are still things left to explore

As the flower regrows its petals and leaves

I realize there is nothing else I could need

 

 

I can't imagine life without it

I swear my feelings are true

Love is like a flower

This flower I give to you.

That was stunning. Especially the first three verses. You brought a smile to my face when I read this. The comparison was spot-on perfect, and the style was beautiful. Truly a gorgeous piece of writing.
I'm in awe.

Oh WOW! I wish I could rhyme like that.
This is a really really beautiful piece. Gorgeous.

I definitely like the metaphors in this one.
Like how the growth of a flower expresses the growth of love.
And how the storms express the bad times.
And if we weather the storms, it shall be a more powerful love than before.

The last stanza is so sweet.
"Love is like a flower, This flower I give to you".

Looking forward to your next writes!
