*a Devoted Gardener Of Love And Beauty

Rating: 3.4

I looked upon her beauty as a flower
I hesitated to pinch her from her stem
Instead I planted myself next to her
Where I too have flourished in a sense…..

Dedicated to my wife

Very rich in imagery and metaphor. Short poems are the hardest to write, but you managed to pack it in as few lines as possible. Well done James Papastamos

Very cute. I get the picture of someone strolling through a meadow and being stopped by a lovely flower, not plucking it but instead sitting next to it in order to continue enjoying it.

Moving. I understood and related to this one quite well; I enjoyed its message. Your use of metaphor is flawless here.
