All The Flowers Are Not In The Desert

Thousand scents on my nose
Hyacinth, lily, magnolia and the rose
Bending and breaking
All flowers are mending

Veering into something
Like a virgin blooming
Petals unfold to existence
Death has its distance

Drought in Sahara
Like thirst in Arabia
Africa has a dearth
All the flowers are not in the desert

  4. Lovely – makes me want to read it again for more meaning. That’s what good poetry does, no?

  5. All flowers are mending…I love the image here as I am also a gardener acquainted with their blooming fragrance that mends a woman’s soul!
