Heaven Is A Flower

Lost in summer’s garden
Of roses, irises, and orchids,
Adrift in a heavenly scent
That lends perfume to the wind.

Surely this is paradise on Earth,
An Eden if ever I was sure,
When I die I pray I might
Take a seed to plant at Heaven’s door.

Earth possesses no finer treasure –
A taste of the flourish around the golden gates
That will welcome us to the ever after
And all the wonder that lies in wait.

    …. in flower-land, in the domain of the Flower Fairy ”…where all flowers used to converse, live, breathe as they interchanged odors…”
    But a group of flowers, tired of this life, asked a permission to the Flower fairy to go to earth and assume a human form..
    and explainig how they intended to live :
    - the corn poppy being a sheperdess,
    - the daisy a fortune-teller,
    - the rose a duchess
    - the wild-rose wanted to be an author ..”
    This comes from a book-work written by a frenchman (J.J. Grandville) and published in 1847 under the name “the flowers personified”.
    The story can be read following the link “below”:

    Look at this flower maybe she wanted to become an angel ……. doesn’t it look like as a wing of an angel..
    I do believe it is !

    That lends perfume to the wind
    Capturing the scent of a seasonal flower in the wind is one of my favourite things, nicely written.
