Garden Of Poetry


My poetry rarely contains much symbolism. However, my desire to improve as a poet urged me to pen this little write. (The symbolic meaning of every flower mentioned can be found at the end of the post). The inspiration for this piece comes from Nandita’s “The Root Of Life.”

Garden of Poetry


Strolling through her stunning verses
the aroma of rhymes entices my lungs
as poetic sunflowers generate warmth
and her love blooms in flowery tongues

Her windblown kisses of Baby’s Breath
Are love florets providing a sweet motif
As we exchange our primrose affections
For I am her stem and she my adoring leaf

She will eternally be my sacred lotus
Planted inside the deepest part of me
As I’ve become the photosynthetic sun
‘ever nourishing her garden of poetry


The image reminded me of you N. Eye liner, touch of lip gloss, and of course the flowers in the luxurious black hair.


Sunflowers (adoration, longevity)
Baby’s Breath (purity of heart)
Primrose (eternal love)
Sacred Lotus (In Buddhist symbolism it represents purity of body, speech, & spirit)

  1. You don’t need me to tell you how inspired and lovely this is …just wanted to let you know that I do read you and appreciate you as many others, sweet soul!
    And with the quiet observance that has me feeling a little voyeuristic 🙂

  2. Challenges to ones craft are bravery incarnate. It also came out well for a step out of the word constructions that you feel comfortable with! Inspiration to try a different form today. Thank you 🤪.
