Poetry and Flowers

One flower at a time, please

 however small the face.

Two flowers are one flower

too many, a distraction.

Three flowers in a vase begin

to be a little noisy

Like cocktail conversation,

everybody talking.

A crowd of flowers is a crowd

of flatters (forgive me).

One flower at a time.  I want

to hear what it is saying.

  1. Hello Linda:

    I’m quit content with great numbers of flowers too. What I don’t like are great numbers of people. They are too noisy and that noise makes me nervous and uneasy. I feel at ease away from the roaring crowd.



    1. The shots were taken in our backyard with a relatively bright sun. The sunshine made its way into the flowers. As you said, it enhances the charm of the flowers.

      I’m glad you enjoyed both flowers. 🙂
