Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
For today’s poem, I looked for famous poems relating to the language of flowers and settled on one beautiful little poem written by one of my very favourite poets Emily Dickinson. You can read the lyrics to her poem below.
Finally, here is my own found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!
“Dreaming of Brighter Fuchsias” by David Ellis
Geraniums and daisies
Show carnations their spice
Bees pick a hyacinth
Hid so small
You marvel, how held roses
Their satin upon crimson, dwell
ATTENTION POETS – SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD!
