Lost amidst the meadow’s view
forgotten flower poised so true.
Lingering in the morning air
none to breath thy fragrance fair.
Silked, unfolded petals wide
forgotten flower, you abide.
Forgotten flower still unseen
and yet you reign, you are a queen.
For unbeknownst to all this day
crowned with sunshine’s golden rays.
Morning dew with sparkling glow
jeweled petals did bestow.
You’ve become a radiant sight
although unseen, your glory’s bright.
Unfortunate who cannot see
unwitnessed still, for all you be.
Forgotten ’til there does appear
someone of worth who’ll hold your dear.
Forgotten flower never fear
your time for view is coming near!
~“All have beauty under the sun, especially those forgotten ones A forgotten flower should not be, if we chose to – we will see”

Thank you dear friend, have a most excellent and relaxing Memorial weekend! 🙂 xx
Thank you my friend, I own you a visit, actually overdue, wayyy over due. Oh heck, headed over there now!
I feel that this can be the analogy of the forgotten people 🙂
It is my friend, it is. Sad thing is some of the forgotten are the very best of the best! 🙂
Yeah, I think so 🙂
Beautiful poem, glorious flower!
Thank you Lyn. xx
What a truly magnificent piece of poetry, Penny. You never cease to amaze me. Multi-talented 🙂
I agree that the flower should not remain unseen, but sometimes it is hard for the flower to make it’s presence known, and sometimes it would prefer to be unseen, even though people see it. It tries make itself seem non-existent
Personally I just love the wildflowers. They do get overlooked sometimes but their very freedom (to grow anywhere) makes them special Alastair, at least I think so!
I took a photo last year, I’ve never used it as it is slightly out of focus, and it is a poppy growing out on the edge of a cliff. My nephew was panicking as I was leaning over the cliff to get the shot.
They grow where they feel comfortable. Like children I suppose. They grew in intelligence and confidence and love where they feel comfortable 🙂
Wishing you a great weekend! This is lovely, Penny. Much love!
Thanks Ute, the same to you ~ a most wonderful weekend! Sending lots of love too! xo
AnElephantCant stay young forever
His memory is losing its power
But like the morning dew
His words are true
AnElephant never forgets a flower
Still Anelephant’s memory power is legendary, none-the-less it’s good to know this, very good to know this indeed! 🙂 xo
Beautiful poetry. Just loved it.
Thank you Laxmi, so very much. And thank you for your visit! 🙂
So beautiful words my dear friend!
Hello Stefan, thank you for your visit and lovely compliment. I very much appreciate both the comment and your dear friendship. with love, Penny xo
Awww that’s a beauty…. especially love the line:
“Forgotten ’til there does appear
someone of worth who’ll hold your dear.”
Thanks Roxi, your words do inspire one, not that I’m in your poetry league by any means, still occasionally the muse does head in that direction, dear friend! xo
’tis not a league we do this for my dear… all are important… every word… every stanza… equally have the power to rattle to one’s very core. 😉 hugggs
Love your muse. Love you my friend. xxx
You are right about the league of things … none the less I know genius when i read it dear friend! Thank you for your wonderful compliments Roxi! 🙂 xo
