Life of a Flower

A Flower bloomed outside my gate
I stopped to marvel it’s beauty, it’s poise
And click a picture while at it
Stepped in my car and sped off to a new adventure at the vegetable cart
Watermelons, papayas,bananas abound
Oh dear! Mangoes nowhere to be found
Loaded bags with supplies for the week start
I stepped out of the car to greet a shock
The Flower was gone
Oh! Life so short! It just bloomed this morning!
Who could be so ruthless to pluck it so early
Why are men so selfish !!
Then as if the flower spoke to me
The purpose of my life is to bloom and give joy
Whether on the top of a branch or at the feet of a God or even in the hair of a lady
Wherever I am, I am making someone happy
I live for a day but I accomplish my purpose in that day
I made you happy, gave you a reason to smile
Now let me spread the joy to someone else
Why hoard me today when you know I will, as it is, be gone tomorrow
I smiled again from inside
Thinking of the flower resting at the feet of the God
I pledged to plant more flower trees at my gate
So that along with the flower my house could be the source of joy for so many more who walk by
Dedicated to my Macazaka who has planted a whole farm to serve others ! You inspire me!
