The Bloom


A flower opened early this morning

It came into the world as I slept

so soft, beautiful and so alone


in such a world


Soft and fragile

pushing your way into existence

making a statement for a day

then fading.

Such is the world.

              Everyday I see that you have posted, I am happy! What a beautiful poem so descriptively telling us (and showing--nice picture) of the flowers struggle to exist. Great job!-Christina

                Sounds like some of the poets here with their daily struggles. Sometimes they are blooming all over the place and then not so much. And, thankfully they return. Very beautiful and timely!

                  The bloom is off this rose.
