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

'We all age, change... it was just yesterday we were - young,' Yet. surely, remain the same within.

How Nature and its magic 'stars' fill our hearts and, what's more, remind us human beings that we have those similar frailties and strengths, sights and scents within and about us! Tis wise to remember that whatever lives - for however short or long a time, creates exquisite and ever-lasting memories! Guess - though profession-biassed, I find myself likening plants to people and vice versa more and more these days!

This is such a gentle, loving post, surely created by a person who sees, not merely with a quick look or thought, but, with more than simply seeing truth but feeling it with loving appreciation .. as we all should!

Thank you so much for sharing. This is beautiful.. i love magnolias too.

(My review was too quickly typed and messy, came back to tidy, so sorry.)

Poppy, your nice words are an everlasting bloom to me. Thank you so very much.
Elegantly lacy poetry, Will! A bloom may wilt, but in the eyes of someone who loves it, it is still just as beautiful....it still holds that sweet aroma. Oh, just gorgeous sentiment here. I loved it. Lydi**

Words match the subject perfectly. The delicate phrases placed like petals fallen from that bloom. Just lovely. :)

Yes, I think I've been smelling to many flowers. Thanks so much Pryde.
You literally took my breath away with this, Will. I am not familiar with the scent of the Magnolia, but the way in which you weaved its brilliance and beauty into verse is stunning! The change of font was quite clever, giving your poem a second voice for us to heed.

This is my favorite of you, and going in my library...thank you, Will!

i was raised in the south. I carry the memory of magnolias - although I am a bit wilty around the edges and I don't smell as nice this poem is resonant.
