Treasure Island

Rose Lu ( Bing Hua )


Flourish and Fade


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

    The entire poem is filled with gems throughout but my favorite lines which one could say hold the whole premise of the poem are...

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

    Very nicely done. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
