Love smells good


Nothing compares to the
Lilac's scent
Such brilliance in color
Their fragrance enticing
But one of the few flowers
that when you pick them
they die
very very quickly

Always saddened me as a child
when I brought them to my mom
and they were all dead
by the afternoon

I truly felt sad that
I had "killed" them
So I learned
Sometimes you have to
leave things where they are
so they will survive
And not try to possess
everything your heart desires

(p.s. notice you never get a bouquet of Lilacs for
your birthday??.. Those florists know better (hahah)

That was cool RedWriter (though I admit to being wary when I saw the title!)

A very serious message in this flowerbed. Too bad more people don't heed it.

So....
Choose what you pick
but don't pick what you choose??

Did I get it?..hahaha

That was nice and sweet...just how I like things.
(smile)

Personally, I like daffodils!
I always smile when I see them 'hosting'
away each spring. I wouldn't pick them though...I'd be afraid I wouldn't see them again same time next year.

Lilac's should be given by the whole bush.
Loved the poem.

Lilacs are my favorite. In my old backyard, I had dozens of trees that gave me thousands of lilacs when end of May came around. And the smell... there is no better smell to describe love...

Wow, thanks...you made me remember home...
