Thorns and Wildflowers


Does it seem that this field,
Laden with wild thorns and wildflowers,
Mean that thorns would gain power,
Over freshly blooming petals,

And ruin the happiness of nature?

What would then be the meaning of thorns,
Conquering the soft, smelling flowers?
An unnecessary battle fought,
In the field of nature's innocent beauty.

The thorn or the flower,
Together both or not ever.

    Thorns are as part of the flowers as the heart is part of a human! The both need each other without one the other will perish! A well crafted and poignant write that shows your deep and touching feelings and also talent! 10+++ Thank you for sharing and keep it up! God Bless You! Romeo-New York City (Report) Reply

    Roses are thorn bushes, honey suckle a smothering vine
    both grow together, both are devine
    Mother nature has a place and time for all things.

    Thorns do not hurt the flowers, but it hurts the people or the intruders who try to steal the flowers and fruits of flora! quite interesting write when we put the same scene in the human society, Nice poem VS. (Report) Reply

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
