"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head)."
-Sylvia Plath


Most flowers wait
Only for the melodic call of the sun
To unveil their gem-like blossoms.
Truly they are gorgeous
As they throw their iridescent hues
To the sparkling aqua sky,
But often those sweetest of color hymns
Are lost amongst the crying winds of day
While soft Nymphaea dearest
Waits, reserved in patient solitude,
For the seductive whisper of moonlight
To show the world
The brilliance of her Flare.

Yeah, I wrote a poem about a flower. I was bored. Flowers are pretty.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Okay... so maybe not JUST when I'm bored. But that particular day I decided I would meander around google. Me being the random bubble of thought process I am it turned into a poetry spree about night blooming water lilies. I didn't like this poem at first, but it's grown on me a lot since I've come back to it. :) I'm glad you like it!
