A Gift for You - A Flower and A Poem


Flowers scattered by the sea

In broken promises left unsaid

Washed away with rising tides

A song of sadness

A word of regret

My mind wonders when finding flowers by the sea

What dreams are washed away

What dreams have been misled

Or on the other hand

Was it a celebration by the water's edge

A profusion of flowers too many in the hand 

Scattered in celebration with a hug and love embraced.

One will never know for sure,

But certainly my mind can dream

Of laughter, joy, or tears

While standing beside the water's edge.



Have you ever come across flowers left on the ground and wondered? I always do!

I love making stories in my mind.

Have a great week, dear friends!

So, these flowers were left on the sand, and you came across them? That is a lovely and special thing. And they are red! I always have to stop and gaze at red flowers.

Have a splendid week, Marilyn.
