The florist


A friend is a field
Of flowers
Take a walk in it
Let the beauty serenade
You, let the fragrance fill
Your heart.

Do not pluck it
It will wither
And die: its beauty lies
Rooted in its stalk.

I will cultivate a field
Of roses and delphiniums
And plant rows of narcissuses
At its center.
I am a florist, a lover, come
Into my field.

    This is one really, REALLY feel good composition that breathes life into that eternally endearing phrase ‘Cultivating Friendships’ with its sterling analogies that screams ‘WAWU’! 😎 I’d probably think to say ‘The Florist’ was legit inspired by it! 😁
    Love, L-O-V-E this! ❤😄

    ‘I am a florist, a lover; come into my field’ is easily for me, the most charming line of the crop…’Adorbs’! 😄 Plus, who in their right minds can possibly resist taking a chance on this ‘florist’ and then ‘lover’; especially with the passionate appeal emanating from between ’em perfect lines?! 😀 ‘A true friend, as surmised by Heather Pryor, reaches for your hand and touches your heart’! Bruce Lee on the other hand affirmed that ‘Love, is like a friendship; caught on fire’! 😄

    You totally thought this through Doc, the hardwork; as is with a farmer, gardener or even a florist tending to their orchards and gardens throughout the cultivation period before the harvest’s heralded in, in the fullness of time. Friendship needs lotsa work to succeed from all the parties… ‘florists’ involved! In the end, every one person’s the better for it as they’d profit of its yield! In the very wise words of Lois Wyse ‘A good friend’s a connection to life- a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world’! 😇😄

    Super-adorable offering served on a sweet smelling platter laced with the prettiest scenting of petals of all hues known and unknown, the world over! 😁 Colorful and lively….life-filled! 😍😃

      When I see a Yemie comment, I schedule a free time to read it and digest it.
      That line is my favorite too: “I’m florist, a lover, come into my field”.
      I agree with you: Friendship is hard work, and it takes total commitment; the reward is worth it in the end.
      I enjoy those quotes.
