TEARS OF A FLOWER


I saw tears in the heart of a flower weeping quietly for love under the rainbow of life.

This intriguing mystery was not only in her tears, but also in her demeanor, which showed her humility and contentment in accepting the atrocities of a cruel life.

What a majestic moment this was for me as I peered intently into the very essence of her dreams existing beneath the realm of nothingness.

I saw the beauty of love in the form of teardrops cascading off her petals onto dead soil thirsting for the water of freedom.

Compassionately, I became the hand caressing her silken petals, as if she were a bird being coaxed to fly again with wings once broken but now healed.

This flower's tears have indeed opened my eyes to the jewels of love, which we should not ignore, even when thwarted by the trials of life.

Her trembling petals upon my lips reminded me once again of love's supremacy...for all she ever wanted was to be loved and cherished in a world filled with much unkindness.

  9. Which came first, Andy, the title, Tears of a Flower, or the poem? It's interesting how a random thought turns into the perfect title, to which you write a beautiful poem, or that thought turns into a beautiful poem, to which you write a perfect title. Which way did this one go?

  10. I have come to really appreciate your style of prose poetry, always so sincerely written, and from the heart.

  11. My dear Ariana: Your expressions always bring a smile to my face. I hope your waiting will be over soon (smile).

    Thank you for the heartfelt encouragement.

    Mike: Smiling...sometimes, the title comes first & I take it from there. Other times I compose the poem & try to take the title from it.

    I had a slightly different title at first, but my trusty eyes at home (wife) said she didn't like it, so I changed it to something more fitting. It helps to have my own exclusive flower at home(smile).

    I appreciate your sentiments & your visit.

    Hello Kerry: Thank you for the lovely compliment. It's truly humbling coming from one whose words are magnificently beautiful.

  32. Andy...
    Such a beautiful yet emotionally touching poem expressing heartfelt emotions. I too like the very last phrase which says...Her trembling petals upon my lips reminded me once again of love's supremeacy...for all she ever wanted was to be loved and cherished in a world filled with much unkindness. So many times it is hard to find that one to love and cherish but when you do it is wonderful.

  33. My dear Ruthi, how are you feeling?

    I will always believe love triumphs over any of life's trials. Unfortunately love is not for everyone, but when you find that special someone who completes your whole being, you should do everything possible to cherish him/her & nurture the relationship.
