Thanks For Remembering Us - Poem by Dana Gioia

The flowers sent here by mistake,
signed with a name that no one knew,
are turning bad. What shall we do?
Our neighbor says they're not for her,
and no one has a birthday near.
We should thank someone for the blunder.
Is one of us having an affair?
At first we laugh, and then we wonder.

The iris was the first to die,
enshrouded in its sickly-sweet
and lingering perfume. The roses
fell one petal at a time,
and now the ferns are turning dry.
The room smells like a funeral,
but there they sit, too much at home,
accusing us of some small crime,
like love forgotten, and we can't
throw out a gift we've never owned.

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

Thanks Poems

  1. Our Prayer Of Thanks

    For the gladness here where the sun is shining at evening on the weeds at the river, Our prayer of thanks. For the laughter of children who tumble barefooted and bareheaded in the summer grass, Our prayer of thanks. For the sunset and the stars, the women and the white arms that hold us, Our prayer of thanks. God, If you are deaf and blind, if this is all lost to you, God, if the dead in their coffins amid the silver handles on the edge of town, or the reckless dead of war days thrown unknown in pits, if these dead are forever deaf and blind and lost, Our prayer of thanks. God, The game is all your way, the secrets and the signals and the system; and so for the break of the game and the first play and the last. Our prayer of thanks.

  2. Thanks For The Pain

    Today is the day I wanted so much to say Thanks for the tears Thanks for the fears Thank you for so many lost years Thanks for the pain Thanks for the black and blue affection Thanks for the debt Thank you for all the times you lost a bet Thank you for causing so much strife And last but not least..... Thank you for taking my life.

  3. Zzzzzzzzzz... The Mermaid And The Sailor...Thanks

    thanks for all who commented and thanks for who inspired me, who let it be from Top 500 poems thanks for that sailor who left his mermaid on that island while waiting under one tree.. thanks for who let my tears fall when harshly criticized me.. thanks for who felt me.............. what does matter is being able to reach share you my thoughts and my aching heart's beats..

  4. Thanks

    My thankfulness for the sacred text you have engraved on my obelisk The hieroglyphics carved means so much In my journey to the seven seas You stood to be my beacon on the storm You stood as a tree seeing my history Thanks once again for the friendship Painting my days really worth remembering
