Written by Pearlyn
They have no mouth
but seem to speak
A thousand words so mild and meek.
They have no eyes
but seem to see
And bury thoughts into me.
They have no ears
but seem to hear
All my cries
my every tear.
They have no arms
but seem to pat
When with worries my heart is fat.
They have no feet
but seem to walk
Along with me in my dreams and talk.
They, I know, are the flowers so nice
That spread their fragrance a million miles.
Grow a few and then you'll know
How your life is fresh and new.
With a smile so broad
I thank my God,
Whose work to imagine is really too hard.

Written by Sarthi
Attired in pure natural innocence
Thou are ignorant of thy enchanting aroma
Unaware of thy Charm
Dances freely with flirtious breeze
Hardly cares about world's joy and sorrow
Thou are neither selfish nor altruistic
Full of Self yet so Selfless!
I am fascinated by your tranquil disposition
At dawn thou bath in sun's rays
Flirt with colorful butterfly
Fall a deep sleep in afternoon warmth.
Enjoy melodious sound of chirping birds
up there - the sky
Gazes you with intense admiration
He kisses you tenderly through his winds
Thou spread thy fragrances in his arms
He grows enamored of thy presence
What a beautiful bond!
Thy fall comes - autumn arrives
Still thou remain full of life as ever before
Not worried; not shaken a bit
Simply falls, without uttering a
Single word to your lover to save you
from getting withered.
Thou unconditional acceptance is captivating
O soft hearted beauty, thy passive life is
Exquisite treasure of green emotions.
Written by Rola Barbakh
You might think
A bunch of plants
Are not special
In any way.
But to me
Flowers are beautiful
They calm me down
Like my best friend.
Their scent is so nice
It makes me feel so happy
Some flowers have a strong smell
I think I will faint!
When I am sad
The flowers are my help
They might just sit there
But they speak a million words.
Of comfort and happiness
A flower feels like a friend
It listens to me
And makes me feel loved!
Written by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Once in a golden hour
I cast to earth a seed.
Up there came a flower
The people said, a weed.
To and fro they went
Thro’ my garden-bower
And muttering discontent
Curs’d me and my flower.
Then it grew so tall
It wore a crown of light
But thieves from o’er the wall
Stole the seed by night.
Sow’d it far and wide
By every town and tower
Till all the people cried
‘Splendid is the flower.’
Read my little fable:
He that runs may read.
Most can raise the flowers now
For all have got the seed.
Messages written by Vijay Vishal
A flower exudes Flush of fragrance When trampled over.
Mother Earth Bears on her breast Assaults Of the spade, the rake, the plough.
The sun pours Light and life Into all living things But suffers self-burning.
The cloudy sky On a wintry night Lets lightning Cut open its breast To shoot a spark of light For a lost traveler.
Supple trees Weather storms But the stiff ones Measure the ground.
Soft grass Squeezes underneath But springs back When feet are gone.
Darkness of night Dryness of winter Have followers in Brightness of the smiling sun And richness of the sweet spring.
