MY FLOWERPOT PLANT


The day I bade farewell to loneliness, I could not help but remember the comfort I had found in the delicate flowerpot plant decorating my bedroom window, which overlooked the crowded street welcoming lovers from everywhere.

The sunlight kissing her beauty through my windowpane also gave light to me when darkness was all I had known.

I found intense inspiration to write love poetry from her tenderness, even though there was no one to read my heartfelt thoughts.

This flowerpot plant taught me much contentment, patience and humility by sitting all alone, waiting for the kindness of my hands to quench her thirst with lifesaving water.

Today, her beauty still glows with and without light, only this time, she takes pride of place beside the throne holding the presence of the woman I love.

Today, my flowerpot plant resides under sparkling jewels in a palace of gold.

  4. i like the concept farewell to loneliness...I like this .. I like this a lot, we take things for granted in life and we dont even know it. Life is so precious, and God gives us beautiful things, and everyday people out there take that for granted.

    Very good writing, and thank you for the wonderful scriptures & A flowerpot.
