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!
