THE FLOWER SELLER


The flower seller stands on the corner

with his buckets of ‘sorry’,

bunches of ‘I love you’,

bouquets of ‘get well soon’.


He addresses every occasion,

twenty euro says it all.


Congratulations and best wishes

in every shape and colour,

emotion with its own smell.


Day in and day out, he sells those

multi-coloured words,

that some can’t find, to speak.


Long after his flowers fade, and droop,

and end up in the bin,

the feeling of them lingers.

In the heart, in the memory, in the nose.
