The flowers move as you sway
the wind catches you to stay
The bees trace your track
trying to catch you back
Your lovely that’s what they say
your smile brightens their day
Your scent makes them shiver
as you walk down and ponder
One day the flowers move no more
the wind stood still colder
The bees lose your track
they don’t want you back
You were sad and lonely
your smile makes their day cloudy
Your scent makes them grieve
as you sat in deep bereave
Maybe the gods cursed you today
no, a hesitant bee say
Maybe someone works its way
to make you forlorn lady
I am reposting an old poem. This was written and published here at WP in my first month of blogging many years ago.
When I saw the photo prompt of Helene of Willow Poetry, I knew this one fits in.
This is likewise in honor of Gina’s recent post https://alifelesslivedblog.wordpress.com/2019/02/24/chaos-to-community-reflections/
It’s not easy to live a challenging life and face the world with a smile. It takes a lot of courage. Gina on her post emphasized the beauty of keeping your composure with a smile amidst the chaos. And how many of us can do that?
We’ve heard many times the phrase “there’s always a rainbow after the rain”; I say why wait for the rainbow when you can learn to love and enjoy the blessings brought about by the rain? Even if the rain turns out to be a storm, I believe, that storm or any storm for that matter will bring a lot of good than bad to us.
Can you smile beautifully when your heart is in chaos? Or can you still see the good even in the worst situation?
