I have roses on my tongue
Velvet kisses, words with thorns
I have magnolias in my eyes
Silver petals that mesmerize
Orange blossoms on my chest
Cover my heart with their zest
I have orchids for my navel
Like a sprite from woodland fable
Through my waist and far below
Hidden garden with its glow
My body, vase of stems and leaves
Ivy wrapped around my knees
Small bouquet of scent and wonder
Arranged for all to gaze and ponder
Tend my garden, see me grow
Water daily, let it flow
Then pick my flowers with delight
For they’ll come back throughout the night
Your writing is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you Shelly! I had fun writing this one and was inspired by a school art project my son did where he had to make a collage portrait using images of flowers and fruit. LOL. He did a great job.
I love this so much! The rhythm is upbeat and enjoyable and your words paint a beautiful picture. This is wonderful and thank you so much for this ❤️
Thank you, Maggie. I appreciate your kind response.
