~~    ~~    ~~

F lowering   clusters   amidst   a  green   canopied  tree,
R adiant  sight ,  the  exotic  flowers  golden - white.
A  sweet scented  fragrance,  from  petals  dew  drops  drip,
N estled   in   emerald   trees  at  their  branch  tips.
G od's   showers   in   my   flower   garden,
I nnate  beauty  upon  earthly  paradise.
P icked   by  pretty  maidens  to  adorn  their  hair,
A llures  my  heart  to  see  the  flowery  affair.
N ature's   blossoms  in  golden  spring,
I mpression  of   jewels  unfolding.


*another name for Frangipani is Plumeria,
Hula dancers of Hawaii wear them in their hair.

2nd place in the contest

    This one is a definite beauty, that describes the Frangipani so well :) I could just picture it in my mind and smell its fragrance ;) You did wonderfully with this, Gautami :) over here, we called these pretty flowers Kalachuchi :D

    wow, what a unique flower you chose and you did so well with this form. You are from India? Gosh we have more and more talent coming here from India. I think the people there really study up on their English!!

    I like the name 'Frangipani' so much, was name of an Italian perfume.. named after its creator. In India we call it 'Champa' or 'Gulachin'.
