The flowers sent here by mistake,
signed with a name that no one knew,

    Nicely done. Triggers the imagination, and it's probably happened more than once! (Report)Reply

    Marvelous. So different is the look to look at the happening of nature and universe. It is perhaps the quality to go beyond time. We all actually searching such new look towards life and object. Unique indeed and obviously universal. Good post by PH. (Report)Reply

    Great metaphor. There are times when events occur in our lives and we do not appreciate them then. The flowers represented those.
    Excellent poem.

    good poem! Success in life is all about perfect timing, being at the right place and at the right time...the flowers in this poem just went to the wrong place, the way it is like in life most often... (Report)Reply
