A flower in the wind



There was a flower, the wind once knew,
That spread the fragrance of love.
With her around, time - but rapidly - flew,
For she was a gift, from above.

There was a flower, the wind once knew,
Vibrantly bright, yet plain.
Dissipating freshness and happiness anew,
She smelled of the Earth-drenching rain.

There was a flower, the wind once knew,
Distinctly apart from the rest!
His liking for her but immensely grew,
Ah! How cruel Fate doth jest!

She left without notice; no trace or clue,
The time he wish'd for, ne'er came.
There was a flower, the wind once knew,
Alas, he would ne'er know her name.

Mayz said...

wat a brilliant line

"there was a flower, the wind once knew"

exceptional!!! u said everythin in dat one line...

a flower - not the flower...some flower...nameless...yet beauitful for it was a flower

the wind - frolickin...neva stable...u kno aaj yahan kal wahan

once knew - an incomplete story...
