Lovely colors
Wrapped together
In a bundle

A beautiful bouquet
From which the sweet scent
Of a lovely perfume

Festooned with
A rosy chiffon,
With elegance unmatched

Delicate and fragile
But a precious treasure
No less

A priceless beauty,
Though not meant to last,
A proof of nature’s bounty

And all things
Deemed lovely

A representation,
Of the joys between people

A symbol,
Of mutual concern and care

Delicately wrapped,
In their decorative
Paper attire,

They silently speak,
And bring us warmth

They quietly whisper,
And bring us relief

They brightly color,
And bring us happiness

With but,
Seemingly silent
They bring light and color
To our days

So regardless of
What people may say
The flowers are here
To stay

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication
