The silent speech of flowers.
What has the flower got to say,
in its floral flowery silent way?
The flower speaks without a word.
Only by your eyes can it be heard.
Some flowers have a message to disclose.
Not to the ear but the unblocked nose.
It’s scent and colour is not for you alone to see,
Its purpose is also to attract the pollinating bee.
In mans egotistical arrogant way,
He thinks it is for him this display.
But we have to go to a flower to see,
the deeper true meaning of its beauty.
By silent example it can show
all things will change and must go.
Wanting to possess we grasp and cling
a flower shows that is a fleeting thing.
When you willfully pick a flower the bloom soon dies.
You understand not with your ear but with your eyes.
Time is fleeting things do not last.
Do it now before your time has passed.
Do not leave things undone,
give your love and have some fun.
