Flower Essence

Real Toads Tuesday Platform

Greetings to friends, poets and story-tellers!

So many awards ceremonies have been hosted this year, culminating with the Academy Awards last Sunday and it got me thinking about the enduring role of storytellers in society. As poets, we are a part of the oral and written tradition, adding our voices to the age. Sometimes it may feel like our words are a mere drop in the ocean of time, but they are part of a great pattern. Let us celebrate being a part of the story.

Please share a poem of your choice. No Rules. No Prompt. No Expiration Date.

A series of Haiku utilizing the word Flower.


a spring search for life

it’s not about the looking

flower opening


planting haiku seeds

spring consciousness rising up

lotus flower dies


here summer breeze blows

flower seeds take up birth flight

who is the sower
