Flowers of May

During the month of May some species of plants, mostly ornamental, come in full blossom quietly exhibiting their beauty, color, and value. It is for this reason that the month of May here in the Philippines is known also as the Month of Flowers. It is also during the whole run of this month that the Catholic community observe Flores de Mayo, a gathering of children and young adults, both male and female, singing praises for the Virgin Mary and offering to her fresh flowers.


Today is supposed to be the start of Flores de Mayo, but I've never heard of children talking excitedly of going to church the way my generation used to. I can't help but wonder what had happened between then and now.

Anyways, the following poem celebrates the life of a flower and depicts its worth...











At the shoulder of the road

the perennial green stands

too long devoid of beauty,

thirsty for honest acclaims ---

an eyesore to many.

But through the march of May

its blossom is praised by this passing girl.


And she who walks abreast

lost her clamors to a mind

that poses to reckon

such prior prejudice;

Eyes captured by those delicate petals,

which beauty now mums

the tongues of men.


And the carols of

the distant bell

call for the feet to tramp still

to where divinity avows

their worth and where

the flower be laid

from those times


it was mostly ignored.

    Thank you for bringing it up, Yvonne! And I would like to apologize about it. Yes, I've checked it just a while ago and found our what was wrong. I've created another one, and this time I've re-checked it three times to make sure this time around it will work.

    All you have to do is click GET WIDGET right at the bottom of my blog's widget, then wait for a box to appear, then copy the code in it.

    Next, you have to ADD new GADGET in your DASHBOARD, go to LAYOUT and then choose HTML/JAVA SCRIPT. Paste the code and then save it.

    Thank you, too, Septembermom, Yvonne for dropping by! Your words are the food that keeps me writing. HUGS!

    Err...regarding my blog's widget, i'm afraid it happened again. I dont know why, but at first click the GET WIDGET is just not clickable. I've tried to click anywhere else over the widget like clicking PAUSE or PLAY), and then go back to click GET WIDGET, and this time it's already clickable.

    I'm sorry for the little inconvenience, but I cannot resolve such issue. :(

    In the meantime, its the only way to make it work. :(

    HUGS! (still!)
