any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Whether it is a flower or us we strive forward, sunward perhaps as there is no other way to go hoping we bloom in our lifetime.
I loved the rendering - simple but deep! Good going. :)
Excellent response, Sumana! Your metaphor is clear and even the shape of the poem echoes the blooms - straight and true.
And good days they are too.
so true... and how they last.
comparison is the death of life....so let that go...our days may be different but it does not mean they are not as rich....smiles
Moving and not always perfect, in balance, our days - sure..thanks, god, we're not robots yet! ~ nice
Great use of the metaphor. Our days are often far from perfect but they can still be good and enriching.
This is beautiful, Sumana. I think there is wonder in the simple and ordinary days we all have & also the depth of them. Life is good, as we each strive to reach sunward in our own way!
I enjoyed this. Thank you.
Beautiful verses running down the line ~ I was uplifted at the end, smiles ~
'My Days,' is perfect! Wait a minute, Days and is, don't agree....how about, 'My Days,' are perfect!
Somehow our dreams of perfection don't always correspond to reality.. still it might be ok or even better that way
our days are given to us to craft a life of something; looking sun-ward energizes us; have a nice Sunday; happy you stopped by my blogmuch ove...
Yes. Love the comparison. I find it new to think of my days as rare--or even common--plants that make it day after day with beauty and all you attribute to them. Recently I showed people as little mountains, but this is also true. I will care more for my backyard blooms, notice more along the.
Contentment, fulfillment - to each his own :) Lovely.
Resignation but also reflection, and appreciation here.
I love the idea of your days rooted, yet climbing towards sunlight. beautiful.
I too loved this idea that Sherry commented on--that your days are rooted in the earth--beautifully done!
lovely... each day is our own, and filled with the richness of that knowledge. and like those two flowers, we lean on each other for comfort, and sometimes, find beauty in that. and we are all part of that very same earth-globe soil. (I love how much you wove into this!)
The first stanza is my favorite.
Yes, our experiences may be different, but we are all still living and sharing this earth :)
A very vivid description.
love the comparison to go deep into the soil and come up sunward- beautiful! K
Beautifully put. Our days are OUR days . . . and should not be judged by those not living them.
A good day is any day without conflict.
Your poetry always inspires, elevates .. this is no exception.
Love the comparison..and truly an uplifting write.
I love your uplifting spirit, always positive and on the brighter side of things. Nicely done Sumana!
I'm in love :-)A very beautiful piece.You are such a treat to read!ZQ
I love your response to that beautiful picture. I just love it.
Beautiful connection between a flower and your life.
Each day can bring much indeed, just have to let it take seed
I read this three timesand each time liked it a little morevery nicely doneCheers!JzB
i like days that are rooted in soil and have the potential to rise... and i don't mind hard work - though i enjoy a lazy days every once and a while as well...smiles
Meaningful soil as metaphor, Sumana...much enjoyed!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
