Sometimes you just have to adore the flower rather than just admire it.

May 8 2012

Thornless long vigorous stems bear
a firm rounded sepal holding
this natural fragrant treasure.
The picker turns over to see
soft supple inviting petals
of inviting pastel pink hues.
Seperated with deft fingers
longingly display the pistil
exposing stigma down to style.
Swaying at slightest exhaled breath
delicate stamens light anters
on thin vibrant filaments.
Finally with tender probing
the deeper soft receptacle
surrounding virgin ovary.
Here the seed of future flowers
now can come into fruition
since the pollen has beckoned forth.

Congrats on your soon to be publication, so exciting and a beautiful poem to boot. As for my other review ...sorry .. pressed wrong button ... but my review went something like ... nature has a lot to teach us but sadly we have lost focus within the dazzle of the dollar. You are obviously an observer of the never-ending, ever-changing vista of life. Cheers Margaret

To merely view the miracle of nature in her beauty. To view her intricate microbes of beauty and how she forms. Her aroma is delicious a crystal and reflection beautifully displayed.

Lovely Budd

I love this sensual verse velvet...
Flowers are utterly symbolic of sensual intimacy
I am especially fond of flowers and their perfume

"... A rose, by any other name......" Nicely done Budd. Much enjoyed.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 5/9/2012
I once cleaned the weeds and poison ivy from the roses at the entrance to our community. My arms were badly scratched by the thorns, so I was grateful that I wasn't allergic to poison ivy like my twin brother. The roses looked beautiful after that, in the itching went away by the next day while the scratches healed.

You paint a vivid picture. I think of poetry as oil painting. Making a picture of words for others to see. You have succeeded.
