Destiny Of Flowers


Approaching spring season
Bring ecstasy to blooms
Creating a new world
Banishing gloom
Blossoming into flowers
Sadness then overcomes
Shortened life, boon or bane
Getting plucked, time and again
Killing a living one for personal gain
For temples to adore
For deities to proffer
For hair to beautify
For bonds to testify
None can justify
Acts of fingers
Fragrance still lingers
Through the seasons
Waiting for a new beginning
Or the end
Destiny of flowers.

    Flowers are Nature's marvels! Though short lived, they are souls opening out to Nature, ever serving as feast to human eye! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

    a beauty in a short life
    a gift that was taken by force, whatever the reason
    This is a fate or tragedy?
    a work that touches
    good poem

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
