Live Like a Flower

Paints itself
With colors
Bud opens
Turns into
A blossom
Flower fades
Falls to the ground
Flower defines
Its own life.

In a life
Further shortened
By elements of
Flower fulfills
Its mission
Delighting others
Giving birth
To the fruit.

Live like
A flower
Of the seed.

    Flowers have only a momentary existence! Still they delight very many hearts and produce fruits! Human life is also supposed to perform the very same functions! Meaningful analogy and a lovely write! ! (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce
