#PoetryInMotion ~ My Calla Lily Friend…


“My Calla Lily Friend”

As I stand here
Caressing you gently
Your pleasant-smelling aroma
Takes me back in time.

To a memory, lost long ago
Full innocence and carefree abandon
Ploughing through the fields
Where I came across you, once before.

I was in awe
Of your unique creation
And held the naive anticipation
That you could be mine forever.

So I took you
Hid you away from your home
Where you quickly wilted away,
Lost your magnificence and passed on.

A heart breaking lesson learnt: my “Calla Lily” friend
That the beauty of nature cannot be removed from its home
As it is a precious gift
For all to treasure, protect and enjoy!
