The flower and the bee

There she was-pretty,yellow and bright,

But her tiny heart wasn't quite feeling right!!!

She was a sensuous sight,an alluring flower,

But for no fault of hers ,her mood was sour!!

Her smile gone,she had no pleasure,no glee,

'Cause none visited her-not even a single bee.

Angry and alone,she one day asked a passing bee-

'Is my pollen and nectar not sweet enough for thee?'

Surprised,the bee answered-'You're gorgeous and grand,

Proudly and bewitchingly with spread petals you stand!

I would have gladly sipped your honey,dipped into your juice,

But then the friendship of the leaf below you I would lose.

You see he loves you deeply and truly-that shy fellow,

He can give up his life to protect your petals so mellow.

He asked us all to leave you alone,to leave you at peace

So our plundering visits to you have been caused to cease!!

He always loved you,from the day you were born,

He sings about you-evening,noon,night and morn!!

Go and talk to him now,you silly girl,you foolish lass,

Lest before you know true love-this moment shall pass!!!'

P.S. Often we seek love and companionship outside,above us,in places beyond our control and reach.While all the time,a leaf sitting quietly below us goes on loving us to no end......This is a poem dedicated to all such silent lovers and admirers.....Hope your love gets rewarded one day!!!!:-)

  12. We often ignore the love of many, concentrating on that which cannot ever be ours. This was good! And hey, the point of a poem is not neat rhyming, its a neat potrayal of emotion! And you did too that. Plus, you don't need to read poems to be good at em. :D

  20. This was so good Rahul...I'm going through this phase of poems boring me to death, even if they are good, I'm like OMG not another poem, blame it one some people who over do the good things, but now I'm burnt...like other poems nowadays I skimmed through this intially but what got me back is this line 'He gave up his life to protect your petals so mellow'...It's just so beautiful. Way to go dude. I'm happy I follow you :D.
