Our Love

NaPoWriMo Day 11

Our optional prompt for the day is based on the concept of the language of flowers.

with
trembling knees
we walk steadily
where
roses laid
down the aisle
symbolic
of love
pure and true
will
you take
my hand forever
and
hold me
never let go?
from
this day
forward to eternity
we
love until
our dying days

 

P.S

The poetic form used is hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words.

I Love Dearly as a Rose

I bring joy, love, and compassion and no amount of hurt or disappointment will change that

 I am a lovely

luminous rose

just thinking

about you

spreading happiness

wherever one finds it

though fragile and delicate

I manage to find

a precious place in my heart

for you with my gentle

pervading

sweet perfume 

 

This old world that we’re livin’ in
Is might hard to beat.
You get a thorn with every Rose
But – ain’t the roses sweet?”
-Frank Stanton

 

Every rose has indeed its thorn. And as painful as it is when we are accidentally pricked by its thorn, we get closer to it and smell its sweet delicate scent and the pain would somehow go away. As we face COVID 19; no matter how difficult the situation is and no matter how heartbreaking it seems, let us not forget that this too will go away. This too will end. Remember every beautiful rose has its thorn. We will all heal together as one. Stronger, better, more resilient, and lovely as a rose.

As we adore photos of beautiful flowers and flower gardens;  we also love to read poetry and prose about flowers and even nature. In just a few powerful words, our mind creates its own image and invigorates our senses, whisking us away to that endless flower field or basking in the sun with our hands in the garden.

There’s just something so intimate about letting our imaginations run freely.

So, as we are all locked down in our homes let our imaginations run freely. You will never realize how good it will make you feel unless you try.

Sending more love and prayers to our frontliners💖💖💖🙏🙏
And flowers too to make them feel better
