Florid

by Ginette T Belle

Vibrant sprays of colour
Frolic in lush emerald fields
Cut fresh to die gracefully
In a crystal water bowl
To adorn summer garden parties
And frosted white weddings
To idealize modern romance
And the ginger wood kitchen table
Forever an ambrosial wonder
Fallen from the heavens above

Author's Note: A artist friend of mine needed a poem about flowers to incorporate into a painting she's doing for her mother...

Odd, I had an image in my mind of your descriptive poem before I ever read the authors note. To me, that means you've succeeded in giving your friend what she asked for. :) Well done.

Mmm.. makes me want to go cut some flowers from my garden :) Lovely poem!

I like this. It seems in this piece that most of the human actions are colorless or monochromatic, while nature or when humans try to get nature, are colorful. Great read.
