I Wish! I were a flower. . .

Flowers r the most beautiful and attractive part of nature. I just want to live like a flower.



We men think that we are the most productive being of the universe. But we forger mother nature is more productive and updated than us. She made us- we must understand she is more powerful, intelligent, sensitive and rational than us. Human take care of themselves, bit mother nature takes care of every living being- whether it is the smallest insect or the biggest mammal whale. For her every living being is equal. On the other hand, man thinks that he is superior than everybody even nature and this create chaos really. That's why nature sometimes takes very dangereous way to make man understand its superiority. Natural calamities are its example. At that time men are like only puppets in the hand of nature.

We have to pay our gratitude to every living being and its creator i.e. nature. Life can become beautiful then only. Nature is immortal, it always remain same. Sun rises every morning, river never stops and treee grows itself. These are all the phenomenon that happens automaticaaly. We must understand it that some day we will not be there but nature was is and will always be there.

What is a poem?

Many poets from ancient time state their definition of poetry. I love what Wordwaorth said, " Poetry is spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings..." I agree with it. Poetry is emotions that want to come out from poet's heart. Sometimes poetry has some instruction and sometimes it is only for amusement. Whatever its.motive is, it always touches the heart of the reader.

I write the poem I wish! I were a flower some years ago. After years when I read it, I find it very attractive. There is a very innocent wish that mostly people want.

Please read the poem and give your precious comments.

Flowers- the most attractive aspect of Nature

I wish! I were a flower

With tender twigs and

Thorns too.

I wish! I fetched every eye towards me

My soft petals were kissed

And praised, gave a gentle taste.

My fragrance sweeten the air

And spread thousands of miles

In the forest, in the city

In the mountain and

In the plain,

Everywhere without any

Scroll to Continue

Change; removes

The boundaries and

Make the fragmented earth one.

My aroma relieved

The tension, the pain,

The agony, the misery;

And bring happiness of everybody

I become the sign of love, affection and dedication

And grow everyone’s door.

I wish, I were hold with love

And not crushed.

But if crushed,

My fragrance

Sweeten those little hands

And make them aware

Value of Creator!

A very exquisite poem. I see you like Wordsworth and romance too. Lol

By the way, being a human does not mean that you cannot display the qualities of the flower. In fact, you are superior to the flower. Just allow your wafts to shine through your smile, Heart and inner beauty. Serve, serve, serve ... never be tired of serving.
