NaPoWriMo Day 11
Our optional prompt for the day is based on the concept of the language of flowers.
we walk steadily
down the aisle
pure and true
my hand forever
never let go?
forward to eternity
our dying days
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 bring joy, love, and compassion and no amount of hurt or disappointment will change that
I am a lovely
wherever one finds it
though fragile and delicate
I manage to find
a precious place in my heart
for you with my gentle
“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?”
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
