THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

Monochrome Wild Daylily Lily in the sun

Of all the flowers in this world
none could be more beautiful
than the ones I tend
and bring to bloom
though they are flawed
sometimes weigh down my soul
still, they are my own
For them I dream
for them I toil
that they may be
what they are meant to be.

  1. I love this poem Imelda… why not be more proud of your own flowers than any others… they are the result of your love and attention… brilliant…

  2. This is such a beautiful poem. So many tend to miss the level of beauty that lies within imperfection. Nothing embodies this more than flowers. Interesting enough, I wrote the poem “Forever Flowers” last week after having such a similar thought lol. Keep writing ma’am, and I’ll keep enjoying πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Mr. Sander, for the visit and the insightful comment. True, I think imperfections are often what draw people to others. They awaken the desire to nurture.

  3. ‘…still, they are my own…’ So heartfelt, these few words alone of a deep longing fulfilled…and I understand. Exquisite this Imelda and the photos write their own poetry… πŸ™‚
