Bougainvillea prose poem

Photo by tevfikgnyzl

A cascade of vibrant pink
Flowing through thorny boughs
Not just a vine, not just a bush
But a perfect treat for the eyes

Blossoming freely round the year
As a real all-time pleasure
Be it the scorching summer blaze
Or freezing winter wind

Torrential monsoon showers
Or devastating hailstorm
I’ve seen it braving all odds
With an ever beautiful smile

Standing with calm fortitude
Despite vagaries of unkind weather
Facing challenges in a soldierly spirit
With a ” Never say Die attitude ”

That is my darling Bougainvillea
A springhead of joy and beauty
A symbol of forbearance
A model of sweet simplicity !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

Bougainvillea Avenue short poem

Amidst nondescript quarters way beyond past their prime Still weaving nostalgic saga of regal magnificence sublime Streets set with old cobbles residual of inestimable spell Windows bearing testimony of inlay with glass and shell Figurine on the gate posts on
