@->- Wild Posies -<-@

My thoughts toss around my head
like wild flowers growing in a meadow
Dancing their little gigs in the wind
The wind whispering secrets and regrets
the flower heads connecting
and passing on messages reaching out
Bending this way and that pulling, pushing
Growing out flourishing scattering
Seeds of iotas from the mundane to insane.

The lilacs and the peonies huddle low
Too shy to join the posie trains of thought
Their youthful innocence calls bygone days

interrupted by forget-me-nots recalling past loves
With sensual encounters sweet peas tease
with the frills of their petals and delicate scents please.

The snap dragons lunge out and make thier
Places heard, calling for unattainable desires clicking shut,
refusing to budge calling poppies for back up

The chrysanthemums snap me back to reality cutting
Tall poppies before they get too high, with the potency
of lust wrought love and the hyacinths huddle and sternly pry.

The love-in-mists shrug their shoulders
as the asters scratch their heads at all the stories,
then turn and say goodbye to morning glories.

The gladioli Start to strive and push up through
The dandelions clining to the roses
Reminding me of the posers in the posies

I guess I'll never know the truth for sure
Till im Pushing up daisies under a small hill
And covered with Laid daffodils.

I too, like you, adore flowers, I have written quite a few poems on the subject and it pleases me no end when I read a poem such as you have written. Did you forget the lovely Blue Cornflowers? Bern

No I certainly did not, there

No I certainly did not, there are so many more versus, but there are many cultural messages for each flower and although I do love the victorian, the Chinese are incredibly dramatic and romantic! I like to have a little integrity when it comes to nature and symbolism I am an earthy girl at heart and used to talkto fairies in my garden and made beautiful houses for them to live in when the bluebells got cramped or were out of season such a joy to read your stories the warm my heart, so pleased you liked my poem! Hugs best regards and much respect SS :)

Beautiful blue cornflowers my favoirite color.


Meaning - Wealth, prosperity, fortune, friendship

The cornflower has also been used as a symbol of tenderness, of fidelity, and of reliability (Beuchert, 2004). Botticelli (15th century) decorated the garments of some of the figures in his paintings with a cornflower design (e.g. in the ‘Birth of Venus’).

It also represents contented ness in un married life! The bachelors button!

The blue cornflower is also one of the national flowers of Germany. This is partly due to the story that when Queen Louise of Prussia was fleeing Berlin and pursued by Napoleon's forces, she hid her children in a field of cornflowers and kept them quiet by weaving wreaths for them from the flowers. The flower thus became identified with Prussia, not least because it was the same color as the Prussian military uniform.
After the unification of Germany in 1875, it went on to became a symbol of the country as a whole. For this reason, in Austria the blue cornflower is a political symbol for pan-German and rightist ideas.

In France it is the symbol of the 11th November 1918 armistice and, as such, a common symbol for veterans (especially the now defunct poilus of World War I), similar to the poppies worn in the United Kingdom and in Canada.
