Having written what seemingly feels like volumes about flowers, their myriad hues, generosity, and worthiness, I am still enamoured with their beauty and significance, their colorful gift, their shining light upon a world that can oft take them for granted.
Personally, this cannot be further from the truth. I could be walking along a pathway (town or countryside) and suddenly encounter tiny flowers that call out for attention, or majestic blooms; dignified magnolia, for example, displaying an awareness of the pleasure afforded those who appreciate their worth. And daffodils; their significance supreme.
‘High Spring’ the season for awakening the senses as the days become longer and the mornings brighter. I have often described Spring as the re-birth of Nature; an awakening as seeds and bulbs leaves on trees venture out proclaiming a new beginning.
January; escaping indoor comfort to be released into the countryside is a benefit when greeted with blooms galore. And there are flowers to be seen. Snowdrops; braving chilly air, cosseted in blankets of snow. Ultimately their little heads emerge, greeting those who seek their grace.
Daffodils, standing tall, but reserving their smiles a little longer, then blessing us with a display of yellow and gentle orange that cannot but enliven the senses; their colors blessing us with rays of imaginary sunshine. And when the sun does shine they glance at us, their countenances a beaming joy, brightening the day for all who witness their selfless generosity.
FLOWERS – NATURE’S GIFT SUPREME
Smiling flowers, golden Daffodils
Faces turn with gentle breeze
Follow onlookers all around.
Imagination or fantasy no matter
Be they riverside or hills be found
Strolling through leafless vistas
Countenances brighten days
Creating smiles for all to see
There is such joy beauty supreme
Releasing our hearts embracing
Kindness and togetherness
Daffodils offer true
Nature’s gift to humanity.
Brighten the day, beautiful blooms.
Flowers make people smile
Celebrate Nature’s glory.
Springtime doth come soon
Brightness and blooms share togetherness.
Kindness will always be there
Share feelings, reach out to others.
Believe in a daffodils smile
