Flowers in a garden

PC- Unsplash

The flowers in the vase look pretty

neatly arranged stacked with care

a cut here and a cut there

trims that the hands desire

the pattern is predesigned

the formations that are pre alligned

a thing of beauty that is suitably placed

sometimes in the corner & sometimes centrally propped

The flowers in the garden look prettier

as a portrait full of colors

swinging with wind as cheerleaders

each having their own unique features

smiling away and looking happy

rawness intact as if dancing to a tune that is peppy

the variety is not perfect but real

the presentation is not in order but natural

Women too are just like flowers

the society tries to prune their wings when needed

they decide with whom she be happy

sometimes its their own blood & sometimes its complete strangers

irony is no one realizes she has a life, a heart & blood that is very red

the whole community tries to jumps in branding her an object

just like lifeless dead flowers she will decorate your home

treat her right & she will fill you with joy just like a garden full of flowers.

    I love the way you have related tender flowers with women and their lives. We do need to treat them well, for them to bloom to their full potential – but can society do it?

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by. That is a very pertinent question and such questions need to be raised on a frequent basis if we need to change mindsets.
