Just before a Gardenia blooms and emits the most fragrant scent -
its bud twirls in such a lovely pattern.

If Love is Flower

I love the connection between love and flowers in Aila El Edroos’ poem, ‘If Love is a Flower.‘ I hope it inspires you, too.

If Love Is Flower

love is endless 
like flowers that keep on blossoming day and night
love is beautiful
like flowers with different different colors
love is growing
like flowers abundant in the garden
love is to give away
like flowers from my hand to yours
if love is flower
how many gardens grow your flowers? 
how many flowers grow in your garden? 
what are the colors? 
what stories are they telling?
if love is flower
