Oh! Flower, I Feel Sorry For You! ! !

Poem by AISWARYA T ANISH

I saw a nice little flower…
Enjoying herself in the nice warm fields…
The place felt fine, what a beautiful sight! !
Why didn’t it come yesterday? !
But the joy didn’t last long enough…what a pity!
‘Cause the flower was plucked away! ! !
It was no longer there
So was the beauty
How gloomy the place felt now for sight! !
Why do flowers bloom, if it has to be murdered this way? ?
Still, they bloom, though they die so prematurely…
But to beautify the Earth! !
Why do we hurt these little things, who give us joy? ?
They are the ones who blooms happiness to the world
Aren’t we too bound to be blossomed into flowers of happiness? ? ?
Oh Flower! ! I feel sorry for you! !
Can you be born again? ?
If I could, I would’ve fixed you into yourself again
But powerless I am…powerless except for eyes that are blind, but see evil thoughts
Why doesn’t man think before his acts? ?
Why doesn't he care about his fellow creatures? ? ?

2006

(Do you think before you act? Such as, when you pick a flower? Do you enjoy the beauty and DO YOU throw it away in the trash? Do you ever think of other people who may also enjoy the beauty?)

    when i pick a flower, it's because(yes i'm selfish) i want to enjoy the lushness and beauty of the flower.to explore the fragrance and cherish the creativity and artisrty that made that single flower...flowers have a language of their own and say so much while being so silent, don't you think? but i usually press flowers in a book and keep them.(Report)Reply

    You can fit this poem into many layers of thinking. Very good thinking and a simple everyday simile to drive home the point well.

    I love this poem the way it expresses beauty And how it should be Cherish, To me If you cherish beauty in small things like a flower, or a shade of a person eye color, finding it in bigger things is simpler. Which makes life beautiful every day.(Report)Reply

    poetry is a tool to convey a 'feeling' - the truth and reality that 'man' is an emotional creature...the words in your poem is simple yet touching the man's nature, and man and its nature.
    however, its not a question to know what is birth nor what is death, but it is a journey to understand the meaning the what is between them...just like in your poem 'the flower that blooms in the morning is the samr flower that will wither in the evening.
    all the best in your poetry let us cvontinue its legacy.(Report)Reply
