Free Verse – White Talking Flowers

A free verse poetry, “White Talking Flowers”.

It’s the lull, the quietness. The place the mind wants to wander to. To shut out, to shut in the emotions, the suffering, or to keepsake a moment, a place in the feeling. A free verse and digital art piece to take you there.

White Talking Flowers

The long slender stems,
the saucers holding white petals,
The offering, of seeds to a blue sky.
Each swaying in a charming breeze
Roots wrangle one over the other
for an existence of life.
And I on my balcony with
a cup of steaming coffee.
I smell the white flowers in the garden bed.
Their strong, poignant fragrance
lingers from a warming sun.
I watch the landscape guy mowing
a green patch over yonder.
The slow hum of the mower reminds me
of worker bees building a honeycomb.
Music spills from the window next door.
It sounds like rock n roll from the 50″s.
Children are squealing with delight from the park below.
I find myself drawn back to the white flowers.
Entranced, I’m mesmerized by their quiet dance.
Each one, moving softly, bending
to the sweet song of nature.
Their quiet noise seems to drown others.
Taking me to a place I love.

  1. I like the many poignant offerings to the sky and nature for solace as the charming background fades and the lens is turned to focus on the quiet dance of white flowers. Sturdy stems.
