Gardenia~Free Verse

A single Gardenia bloomed today

On a lonely morning by the bay


I had watched it for days to see

If it granted more blooms to me


The fragrance of that one bloom

Sufficient to fill the living room


Filling the house with scents divine

A perfect space to relax and unwind


Perhaps tomorrow another will appear

Infusing its essences both far and near

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Sometimes even the bloom of ONE flower can lift one’s spirits, I think. It gives a person hope. And that is what we often need to know. Spring will come. Life be good. Flowers will continue to bloom!
