A Cactus Flower - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

If I am a Snake and you are a Cactus flower in a thorny bush.
Do you think that we can love forever?
If I am a River and you are the Bank
Then only we can join together in the Ocean of Love.
In the ocean if you turn to a Shark and I become a coral flower,
Then what will happen to our endless love?

To the eternal lovers who drowned in the stream of love.
Re-birth of my friend Denis.Joe may you long live!

    Sometimes, the 'what if's' overpower the 'what is's'. Your compasion shines in this fine tribute to dear Denis Joe. I hope you are faring well in these past months, as I have not had much chance to catch up with you. (Report) Reply

    Warming and empathetic. Cannot argue with what was and is, but the future always brings surprises of its own. A Cactus can hurt. So can roses. We still accept what we are attracted to. With love goes suffering. We can't grow without hurting. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful, but sad... I was drawn to this title as I collect cactus plants... I was not disappointed.... It would be lovely to think that we could live eternally with the one we love...
    Take care. Joey (Report) Reply
