Your fragrant words

Beautiful flowers
Lillies, babies breath, iris
All white
As pure as the words written

Wrapped, too, in the green foliage
Roses, orchids, gloriosas
For there is no price
For a broken heart

The aroma fill my head
Daffodils, tulips, and pansies
Caught my tears
The envelope untouched

Scents from all pedals
Unleashed the words
You could not speak
Good bye is all I saw

A bouquet now lays
Where once you did
The beauty didn't replace
Your fragrant words

    I like the way you weave the use of flowers with the concept of lost love. It is a creatie approach on the subject. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and for your kind words on my poem. Keep on writing!

    This is a very sad, yet touching poem of pain and love lost. You have written it beautifully, the pain in each flower so poignant. Blessings...Carrie
