Now my poem for this week’s Thursday Poet Rally:

Flower in rags

Sitting on the park bench
Watching kids play
Dressed up like angels
Running, laughing all the way.

A rude refusal rang out
A sharp, cruel tone
Shattering the blissful
Lovely serenade.

I turned my face
Saw a sad scene.
A flower being ripped
By a bitter thorn.

A beautiful flower
Dressed in rags
Was trying to sell
A bunch of roses.

Some well-dressed mama
Thought he was too dirty
To come near her
Or her precious ones.

So she was applying her right
To make her understand
How unworthy she is
Of venturing so near her.

She turned to walk away
Scared and pale
Learning a lesson bitter
Too early in life.

Finally my nomination. An extremely talented poet, who deserves a lot more recognition. Lord Emmanuel http://lordemmanuel.wordpress.com/. A very gifted poet and a very humble human being. He too often pays the most beautiful compliments to all of us.

  1. What’s more important, the exterior or interior?

    Don’t judge a book by its cover. Howard Hughes used to go around dressed like a poor man, working at odd jobs, a major thing about him, he was a millionaire at that time. A little nuts some say.

    I heard a song the other day by Arrested Development called Mr. Wendal. Nice song that holds the hand of your poem.

    Watch we teach children mold their views. Insightful piece Trisha.

  2. Such a lovely piece…
    People are their worst enemies, don’t you think sometimes?
    I love you more, Trisha.
    Mine is here
    Happy Sensational Wednesday!

  4. Trisha:

    wonderful story, yes, I recall similar scene, parents are too protective of their kids, they look down at the poor or the less able ones, or simply reject and hurt the ones who are mis-fortunate and try to make a living on their own…

    in this poem,
    the one who are dressed in rags need our sympathy.

  5. an inspiring poem Bassu, never feel contempt or shy away from people/ children because they’re poor or dirty.well done Bassu.
    thanks for asking about me and my thursday poem; in fact I’m busy these days at work with lots of stuff to do but I’ll post my poem soon.

    • fortunately i have learnt that lesson so early in my life that i wont be able to shake it off in this life. thank God for my father, who taught this to us before we knew what physical appearance is.

  6. what a perspective,
    thank you for posting early this week and I support your week 18 nomination: Ibok, yes, he is very talented poet and deserve the honor.

    • dear anthony,
      thanks a lot. i just share my feelings with you all, and its so beautiful to know that there are so many people who feel just the way you do and they are among your friends.
      happy thursday and namaste,

  7. I give myself time to get to know people… one on one. 🙂 It is a lot more fun that way. 🙂 Congrats to you again. Great post! You are very kind with all of us with your words. Have a fun day. 🙂

  8. You touched my life in a special way with this post, Trish. You may not be able to estimate how much this means but this means a whole lot to me. I am deeply honored…Cheers!!!

    • dear emmanuel,
      i am happy and honoured to have you as my friend. you are an awesome poet and a wonderful human being.
      happy thursday and week ahead,

  9. How most forget that we can all change places. I felt sad for the child selling roses and the mother who walked away. Fear.. I love this line:
    “A beautiful flower
    Dressed in rags”
    Beautiful poem

    • thanks gerardine, its quite a common sight in india because we see these children everywhere- in rags, forced out of home to toil because of penury.

  10. The early life lessons we learn help form the character we will grow up to be. though most are cruel and harsh, its easier to learn our lesson when we are younger than when we are older. great poem and continue your path to success, just so you know, the grand opening of my new website http://www.shoelessboywonder.com is this Sunday and i am thoroughly excited.

    • Congratulations!

      you have every right to be excited 🙂

      This is a fantastic achievement. May success kiss your feet every second from now on.

      best wishes,
