' Honesty' Of Flowers Poem by anushmadhu Sanna Ratnavel

' Honesty' Of Flowers

Rating: 3.1

Flowers, We…
The faithful wife of poets
The call girls of beetles
The adopted children of gardeners
Sometimes we are used in celebrations
And in the event of homage, given too
Sometimes we commence love affairs
And travel on the bouquet of brides
Sometime as demand dowry in temples
And to glorify the checks of Gods
And politicians too
What else..?
We are 'Honest' to pristine
And so we die
on the same day of our birth

A flower belongs to no one, but exists to bring joy and beauty into the world. Do they not touch us more than we touch them? This poem is easy to read, but the last words do not seem to finish the poem... In a few lines you miss the simple innocence of a flowers life. The adopted children of gardeners- would that all children had such a home!
