So I Am A Black Flower....! ! ! - Poem by Konjit Berhane

The planet is a garden
We the people are the plants
God is the gardener
And he didn't want to have one-colored flowers
But...variety with different and especial qualities


So i am a black flower
And you could be a yellow one
Or else a white, brown or red like the sun
And when he gathers all the flowers (that's us people)
In to a bunch, that's what makes him smile

So let's unite for the sake of beauty
Make life a happy one as if it is a duty

So i am a black flower
What color are you?
Do you mind joining us and be a branch?
For you will add beauty too...! !

    Konjit, you are indeed an exquisite flower and I am happy to smile at you over the great distance between us. I pray you're smiling also.

    Very original metaphor and admirable sentiment - let us all cherish both the unity and the variety of this beautiful world in which we live together. Thanks, Koni, for this poem. (Report) Reply

    Konjit, it's truly beautiful, this poem of yours. I love how you have referred to all our different colours as colors of flowers. Yes, a mixed bunch would be the prettiest! ! !

    I fully agree with all you say. We are all colours in the same garden, Konjit. See my poem 'So I'm pink with yellow spots' - it's got the same sort of message and was written in response to the many poems about skin colour. Peace and love to all.

    Love, Fran xx

    I AM A BLACK FLOWER
    AND YOU COULD BE A YELLOW ONE
    OR ELS A WHITE, BROWN OR RED LIKE THE SUN
    AND WHEN HE GATHERS ALL THE FLOWERS (THAT'S US PEOPLE)
    This is one of the great poem and best for us to keep
