Free Verse: A Symphony of Flowers


A free verse poetry, “A Symphony of Flowers.”

There are times for me when I view things in a different light. I let my imagination run wild. I guess it is the creativity that is like an overflowing fountain of inspiration. Seeing more than whats really there. I thank GOD for such beautiful gifts. We each have one, have you found your special gift?

A Symphony of Flowers

Each flower, unique of itself,
brought something to this place.
To a flower garden created of love.
It reminded me of an orchestra.
Multiple pieces, sounding color.
A tender breeze whispering music into blossoms.
Each, flower swaying at the strike
of concord of sound and motion.
Each consisted of timing, one after the other.
I watched as the blossoms danced and swayed.
Become a silent symphony of flowers;
a musical composition.
Each blossom an instrument,
with thin stems stretching, of violins.
Each big flower head,
Of kettledrums, except upside down.
Each playing an orchestral part
in the ensemble of summer.
And I with my iced tea as the Maestro.
With each sip, the breeze became stronger.
The tempo of pitch and one could smell the
the fragrance as it shook free from blossoms.
A sky and trees watch in awe—a silent audience.

What is a Free Verse Poetry? Typically patterned by speech rather than meter, this form of poetry is very open to the author’s discretion and usually does not rhyme. Visual and sound effects are often employed.  It can have as many lines as the writer wishes.

  1. Your flowers could be a metaphor for the human race. Each person a beautiful, special flower. Special and beautiful to someone who loves them. And the Maestro in the poem might be God. Just a thought. I’m having a good night.
