In response to Kip's poem: "Sometimes I feel I am the leaf", which in turn was inspired by my poem: "Sometimes I think I am the Rain" ...I think that was cute!


Sometimes I feel I am the Flower... (in response to Kip)...

Sometimes I Feel I am the flower, *
Next to the leaf that you are,
Bobbing my head and nodding to you,
My petals fragrant with pinkish hue,
Smiling lovingly at you!

Sometimes I want to be the bud,
Unopened, and untouched,
Flowering and blooming to your touch,
When, you enfold me it your tuft,
Protect & shade me from the frost,
With fear, on wintry night, I'm fraught!

To be the pollen in the center,
Sprinkle you with honey nectar,
Enwrap you with a tender fervour,
Love of you in my heart to nurture!
Make you drunk with Manna dew,
In a way, can very few...

Sometimes I feel along side,
The green leaf that you are,
I am that very flower!

Beautiful, Zoya! This is a really neat idea. I love the second verse, just the whole image of innocence and safety and love and protection it presents is very nice. Cheers!

...Sometimes i feel i am a bee,
and you're the flower that in my path i see,
your succulent self brightly poised
atop the peak of a rose filled shrub,
waiting for your pollen grains to be devoured and scatterred by me...(coming soon)

...Perhaps i will be the bee! lovely response...simply amazing....i dint see it coming...
