Ode To A Floral Dream

Ode To A Floral Dream

written by: Aminath Neena

 

 

Oh, Fuchsia!
Thou who bring the summer’s song
to autumn’s crispy ears
Neither the pink gloss of camellia
Nor the satin gown of dahlia
Doeth pave justice
To thy magnum opus charisma

Oh Fuchsia
Thou who bring the summer’s song
to autumn’s crispy ears
Gentle friend of midsummer begonia
Companion of summer blue lobelia
Thy demure belittles the aura
And dazzle of all seasonal forsythia

Oh Fuchsia
Thou who bring the summer’s song
to autumn’s crispy ears
Curled velvet of Petunia
violet lips of glazed ambrosia
Thy bloom lone canst suffice
To the Homosapien heart’s dystopia

Oh Fuchsia
Thou who bring the summer’s song
to autumn’s crispy ears
Pentamerous petals of peachy freesia
Clutching onto shades of sun kissed zinnia
Thy sultry pout hath shamed
many a lovers’ wanton euphoria

Oh, Fuchsia!
Thou who bring the summer’s song
to autumn’s crispy ears
My earthly floral Isabella
Wearing thy autumny tinted penumbra
Dreamt have I so for mine espousal chemise
Thy beauty smiling in a roseate veiled tiara

Fuchsia! Oh, Fuchsia!
I beg thee; let not this be
one ficklest dream of utopia
