The Blue Chrysanthemums (Wordless wednesday no.17)
I stumbled upon this wonderful poem,
I just had to mail it to him.
He slipped away from work at lunch time,
Hiding these blue chrysanthemums
Behind his back.
And he rang the bell.
I laughed in delight
At the unexpected surprise
And he looked at me with a kind of look that comes
Only when love burns with an intense depth
No words were needed
His eyes said it all
But still he said them to me,
"For the most beautiful woman, in my eyes,"
I smiled to hide my bashfulness, my joy
And asked him to have lunch
But my heart had already begun to hum
And it was hard to drown the song.
I still hear the music.
And I smile.
I feel Cherished and loved
The best feeling to have.

Initially was going to post only the photo for Wordless Wednesday. But the flowers and the feelings associated with it were so beautiful that I had to put it in a poem.
