F- Floral Tapestry!

A to Z Challenge 2022 – Nature and I

The parade of swaying blossoms always gladdens the heart. Irrespective of their size, color or shape, they are pretty sights to behold. The swollen buds, unfurl exquisite symmetry of petals interwoven with delicate grace. They infuse the air around with their sublime fragrance. Be it in a pot, a well curated garden or the wilderness, flowers bring untold bliss, by their mere presence.

I live in a city surrounded by ever growing concrete structures. The smoky polluted air often dampens my mood and spirits. But when I walk into my balcony, the motley of hues welcome me with a charming smile. I feel their spirited embrace envelope me, lifting up my spirits instantly. They enliven the otherwise insipid surroundings.

Holding a bunch of flowers and inhaling their divine fragrance, is all that is needed brighten our mood. Nature blesses us with many such joys. From the humdrum mundanity of, all we need to do is pause for a few minutes, hear these seraphic beauties speak in scented whispers and feel the gentle waft of happiness come our way.

Abloom!

From the rain drenched mud

rises a tiny bud,

its dormant beauty, encased within layers of green.

Radiant rays caress, prod it gently,

dewy drops, sprinkle showers of misty scents.

With a slow yawn, it awakens from its dreamy slumber

as the sounds of dawn play in chorus.

It unfurls its white silky petals

soaks in, the hues of a pastel palette,

sways to the balmy breeze, a lilac blush,

diffusing its ethereal fragrance.

Abloom, what a cheerful splendor!

Inspired by the lovely blooms in my pot!

The perfect setting!

The drifting wind carries a sweet floral fragrance, alluring me to step into the most beautiful garden. The bird chirps, echoes of the rustling leaves, the riot of blooms, a table set for two, is just perfect for my date.

Trring…….darn the alarm, jolted back to the mundane morn!
