Little Purple Flower - Poem by Aufie Zophy

I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers!
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
A nerd, or so he must be
Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
And took a picture of me

Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
I have to die, as yesterday my peers
I will do so happily
since someone has seen the beauty in me.

    Loved this poem. There are many nerds including I who derive pleasure in being with and appreciating small things. That is what life is all about for most of us. You have expressed our yearnings and expectations so well through purple flower. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    A flow of emotions,
    A poem that challenges the poems of Victorian era (Report) Reply

    Sharing beauty, as purpose of life, how wonderful, what a great pen, even if short, the purple little flower to life may say good bye instead of regrets with a beautiful smile. (Report) Reply

    Oh goodness..this tiny cutie purple flower
    What a delight it brings to all
    That she might die tomorrow and fall
    She's counting her blessings, should we all?

    If she is a kid
    She is one cute talkative brainy expressive little girl. (Report) Reply

    Great poem about great purple flowers. You might enjoy my poem O BEIJA-FLOR. It's in Portuguese but has the English translation with it.
    Well written. (Report) Reply

    Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
    I have to die, as yesterday my peers
    I will do so happily
    since someone has seen the beauty in me.
    Death is the final destination, I and you, nobody can escape from death. But if we have an element of beauty in us and it is faded without being noticed by someone the death becomes very painful. I congratulate you that beauty of your poems is noticed and appreciated by a large number of your readers. (Report) Reply
