Little Purple Flower - Poem by Aufie Zophy

I am a little purple flower
My petals so extremely small
I 've stood in the grass for many an hour
Enjoying a breeze most of all

But, oh, what happened to my peers!
Just yesterday, it moved me to tears
While the children of John were playing their game
My peers were trampled to death, what a shame

When just before that, some bigger flowers were damaged
The children were scolded badly by John
But when my brothers were ravaged
It was noticed, sadly, by none

Today, however, I had a reason to smile
A nerd, or so he must be
Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
And took a picture of me

Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
I have to die, as yesterday my peers
I will do so happily
since someone has seen the beauty in me.

    A great thought expressed through this beautiful poem.Our life may be short, but if we can give something to others within this short span it is a worthy life; it is a life fulfilled.
    A little purple flower amazes me wit its simple beauty.To quote from the poem- -
    Today, however, I had a reason to smile
    A nerd, or so he must be
    Looked at this little purplish flower, a while
    And took a picture of me

    Even if tomorrow, to the worst of my fears
    I have to die, as yesterday my peers
    I will do so happily
    since someone has seen the beauty in me.

    Aufie Zophy,
    Our larger existence is the total of the small within our day to day lives; in thought, deed, and in interpretation of what we see, feel and hear. Your poem, (Little Purple Flower) gave voice to the tiny blessings which if swept over we may simply miss. Thank you for writing. Blessings to you in your life and writing. May you continue to grow and learn and question and I hope you find true meaning.........................................Kathy

    Liked the way small things were woven with the big themes. Liked the sea of flowers in the end. I will come back for more. (Report) Reply

    Sweet Scent Memories Eternal Smile

    love passing beauty may wilt fade
    like short temporal flowering flowers
    sweet scent memories eternal smile

    A poem that is so moving it deals with how we all at times feels insignificant and the power of somebody seeing our potential, our beauty. We bloom forever eternally in a garden of love and respect. A poem that is an outstanding write! (Report) Reply
