Sunday Writing Prompt – July 2, 2017: Love Flowers

I love flowers, and luckily for me Hubby buys them for no apparent reason, just the thought that I might like some.

This is the prompt this week:

It’s a glorious day, so I thought I’d pay you a visit. Not that I need an excuse you understand, just that I want to be with you, to share the day, the sun, the moment.
You love flowers. It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple posy of daisies and buttercups from the fields and hedgerows, or a master bouquet wrapped in ribbon and cellophane costing the earth, both are received with the same enthusiasm and pleasure.
It’s one of the many things I love about you.

I decided on roses, bluebells and poppies, sheltered by a sprig of laurel as I lay them before you.
You are forever in sleep My Love, whereas I am dependent on others until my bones mend.
A drowsy bee passes by and I can sense your smile. Hoping he will alight on my offering,  my heart swells at the thought, and when he does, I laugh.
I miss you so very much.

  1. How lovely and heartfelt Di! This is sensitive and wistful, yet quietly accepting, and even – hmmm – soulful. I like how you’ve written something that hints at the depths, and leaves just enough “missing” for us to consider and contemplate – loss and longing, and yet, a simple pleasure – the ending, the last few lines – absolutely gorgeous. Truly a wonderful post – thanks for playing the Sunday writing prompt 🙂
