My poem ‘The Love of a Flower’ is a description of an enlightened love…
I see flowers as something very holy and divine. Flowers are enlightened plants that carry a higher vibration and produce either fruit or beautiful scents.
One can be absorbed into the beauty of a flower and I feel its something that we should do daily in our lives: to “Stop and smell the roses”, to see the beauty in life and to cherish it.
To love like an enlightened flower is to love fully and to see the beauty in the other person. It is about being fully present with the one you love and not thinking about what you have to do later in the day, not focusing on the phone ringing but giving the person you love your undivided attention.
By living in love, we bring ourselves, and those around us, to a higher vibration. We allow pure creativity and divine inspiration to flow through us when we are silent. Silence in the mind is key to hearing the heart.
Love of a Flower
Whispers, tender and twisted
Vines embracing, forever co-creating
To answer to this calling of silence
the voice of the heart
In this now, it’s like the very start
The scent of hope, leaves all thoughts tied
The problems of yesterday, not in the mind's eye
For in a moments notice the beauty of the color leaves one breathless
The souls language can only be felt
How soft and frail, delicate and present
Started from a seed and gave birth to unlimited potentiality
Enlightened like a flower
With the beauty of creativity,
That’s what you mean to me
