F is for Flowers - Alphabe Thursday


I am participating in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday! 

F Is For Flowers

Exquisite art from nature,
To brighten up our world,
Little bursts of pageantry,
In remotest spots unfurled.

Colors of the rainbow,
From palest shades to bold,
Blooms in early springtime,
To winter's biting cold.

Scents emanate from many,
Some light and barely there,
Others are most potent,
Creating perfumes rich and rare.

From the smallest purple violet,
To the reddest crimson rose,
We have a floral love affair,
Where every planted garden grows.

  13. Great poem. This makes me think of one of my favorite experiences. It happens in the early summer at the back of one of the nature parks I visit. There is a place where I smell the sweetest smell I've ever known. It's coming from the flowers, but I never find out which ones.
