Scentless

 

We are in an unending search for affection, faith, and acceptance.

 

And the longer a solo flower remains in denial to its need for another amidst the fields of God, the paler its petals appear, wilting with the unfriendly winds preceding a storm.

 

"You are one insensitive, scentless flower." the wind hisses against the fragile, half-hearted, loose petals..

 

There are days when we refuse the soothing touch of the summer rain, or the persistent, cheerful embrace of the spring breath.

 

We do not need to be loved by Earth's nature, for we lack the capacity to smile back at its unconditional kisses and hushed, sheltering breath. We'd rather not owe it later, because we would be penniless still. We would know not the ways to tend the pitiable, dried out leaves of the trees in the autumn, and we are afraid we would not recognize its weeping frosted limbs in the winter. We would know not the ways to return the favor.

 

We would stare at the shards of love reflected in the mirror of a pond with tears of mangled human emotions slowly freezing in trails on our stained skin. And the vanishing spring would stare back at us with bitter broken tears of widowed gratitude.

A powerful and beautiful poem. I like when nature is used to make a poem stronger and a point more clearer. You told a very good story using the gifts of nature.

There are lots of things around us we don’t see and some we choose to ignore. I see a lot of insight in this piece. Excellent write.

What an overwhelming word on our experience... feeling this darkly lit music washing over our solitude and sorrow... This carries such a vivid imagry of life on the edge...

this poem! this is the great beauty and truth of the universe... the imagery, the personification, the so-very-real thoughts that flicker through each word and every mark of punctuation...astounding, my friend.
