Flourish And Fade - Poem by Rose Lu ( Bing Hua )

Every floral flourishing
Is a hope of dream
Every brilliant blow
Is a risk of life

When a flower blooms,
I don’t know if it will bear fruit
But when it flourishes
I know it’ll inevitably fade

They say women are like flowers
And maidens the freshest
There isn’t a single flower that never fades
Nor a maiden who can stay forever in her prime

Both natural flourishing and unhurried fading
Are romances

A frosty-headed fair lady
gazes at the withering petals in the tree
As a gust of wind blows
They fly away with the breeze

The lady
Smiles in the wind
so brightly
As brightly as a flourishing daisy

    Nothing is immortal in this material world.

    But a bud flourishes to flower.
    Perhaps, to fill a little joy
    Momentary yet pure peace
    In tiny heart of human.
    .........................................loved your write.

    A nice thought with beautiful presentation, my Dear Rose! (Report) Reply
