“May our heart’s garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

Deeper than roses the expression of eyes
Stirring within oh fresh budding hope  ―
Halting, I stand in awe towards you gaze
Utter but whisper trembling in the wind
Love’s both jagged thorns and petals pretty
I smile as wisdom filled with fragrance blooms ―
For it’s only with heart that we rightly see

    Stirring within oh fresh budding hope. Budding flowers also are so symbolic of hope. I also loved the line I smile as wisdom filled with fragrance blooms.

    I very much enjoyed this! Love the metaphor, and my favorite is the first line. Eyes are the deepest expressions, the windows to our hearts.

    Coming in late to extoll your virtues, there’s is a substantial queue in front of me–your short poem is very metaphoric & romantic, but we must not forget that the heart is the vertex/hum of emotion, & too often it gets snagged on the thorns of the dishonest & deceitful.

    Good feelings will be reflected with and through a sincere heart! Very true Sanaa!
