Pretty flowers

Pretty flowers

A Poem by Tina
"

Saw a picture of a pink flower with dew drops on it and came up with this poem.

"

Sweating with dew.
Pink supple petals
kissed By the morning
sun and light summer
breeze.
Yawning and stretching
tall. Beautiful. Delicate.
Alive.
Serenaded by birds and
kisses stolen by bees And
butterflies. 
Fanned by the wings of
Hummingbirds that drink
of their sweetness.
Seeing many blissful days
before wilting and
Returning to the earth.

First, Tina,
I thank you most gratefully for your lovely review on my poem, "Softly ~ in my dreams".

What poet could resist such a heart-thrilling title as "Pretty flowers"(?) … not me, for sure. : )
One of my favorite forms is Free Verse, and you've certainly composed the sweetest, most effervescently glowing pieces of image-laden, metaphoric beauty I've been lucky enough to come across in a long time … isn't it amazing how a mere glimpse can inspire a poet's imagination to create and express such wonderment as this?
I'm particularly struck by how you've so skillfully detailed the life and cycle of Nature's most wondrous displays of artistry.

Thank you with my heart for sharing yours with us, Dear Poetess! ⁓ Richard 🍃


psst! [Hummingbirds -- one word] : )

Beautiful poetry. You didn't simply smell a flower, you write a poem about it. That's what I call take the time to enjoy the simple things in life. Wonderful. I once saw a video on a carnivorous rose in Italy that I felt I had to write about. The poem is hidden on my page but you can Google the carnivorous rose if you're interested. Tyfs

Thank you, I will look it up
wow, this is gorgeous to read.
I see it allegorically, likening it to a woman who is beautiful and popular and ends up being used
for her beauty...She thinks she is benefitting from those around her when actually they are like weeds choking her and eventually her so-called blissful life becomes a burden. Eventually it causes her to wilt
and then welcome death as a release and relief.
This is a perfect blossom of a poem.

I guess it could be taken that way. Poems are seen differently by other eyes.
Yes, all things material eventually return to the earth that spawned them. But that for a brief moment they gift us with their beauty, as described in the poem, makes their time here worthwhile.

Thanks for reading
The delicate use of your words make this poem a breeze to read. The scenes you describe are vivid and clear. The silence between the lines make it seem like we're watching the humming bird as he floats without interrupting him.

Great writing.
