Poetry

Outshone by Elegance

Pure, framed amongst a garden of serenity,

You bloomed, a spectacular vision,

Arousing sensuality, your sanctity, an abstract of sacredness.

.

Amidst you, stood the ones of colors display,

Some in shades that beguiled the garden to wakefulness,

While others sashayed in a dreamy semblance.

.

Silent steps tread the garden’s footpath,

They, that bore those steps gaped and gasped at your glory,

More so than the others.

.

The flowers that beguiled, strained for acceptance.

They defined vogue, though relegated silent contenders,

They cavorted, they whirled to consciousness,

Their need for acceptance unequivocal.

.

But you, you were elegantly surreal, a desirous white,

Your attire, in tender reverence,

Your prudence, your uprightness,

Not seeking attention, your brazen humility,

Like the color of your petals,

Outshone,

You, unassumingly became worthy of exaltation.
