Helpless Flower

At night.blossoms the cirrus flower,
Darkness can not see its pure splendors,
To please the darkness with its colour,
With lure & fear the flower surrenders,
Darkness relishes the sweetness of nectar;

Day waits to see the flower in its grace,
By the time darkness had kissed its face,
Knowing well with greatness accepts the farce,
Helps the clour and fragrance to spread and enhance,
Other side of the world, night continues with another advance;

    God has made such plans that we have flowers blooming in allseasons and day and night. the fragrance of flowers that bloom at night reminds of their presence. a lovely poem with beautiful imagery.

    Blind nights do miss the splendors and colors of the ‘flowers’ that bloom in nights... a story of the ‘other side’ of the world?
    ‘The day knowing well with greatness accepts the farce…’
    A very deep line! Excellent write, vidyadhar! a ten...

    The seductive power of this flower is short and intense. The poem brings out this in its intense imagery.

    Vidyadhar,

    Was it just me or was there something just a little bit sexy going on with
    that flower?

    B.V.A.
