Missing Flowers - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Flowers still blossom,
Bring beauty in the bosom,
Eyes are shocking,
The hearts they are knocking,
Fragrances inspiring,
The soul is admiring.

But the missing flowers!
Where are the flowers?
And the kissing showers!
Where are the showers?
Beneath blissing bowers!
Where are the bowers?

We need your colors,
We need your odors,
You are pretty and melodic,
How nice is your music!
Butterflies are sad,
The winds go mad.


Add songs to the book;
Add music to the brook,
You have power of shook,
With your pen you look,
Our smile you took,
Give it back you crook!


Hairs of the poetry, needs you frizzling,
And its lovely body, needs you drizzling,
Decorate eyebrows, with your lovely lines,
The poems need, your vision and shines,
Please, just a kiss, the poetry says,
With her heart standing in your lovely ways!

    Your poem is revealing. It accentuates the significance of flowers, and their role in daily life. And when they are not there, we miss them. I love it and will be reading more of it in the times to come. Thank you very much Akhtar. (Report)Reply
