Two Wild Catkins


Two Wild Catkins

They had sprouted in a place they were not meant to be

An empty flower pot in a lavish garden

And it wasn't at all a welcoming place

For untamed flowers that didn't curtsy.

But they were strong, bold and determined

And so they grew with their heads held high

Stubborn and fearless!

With passion that was wild.

Though they knew their time was limited

As soon, they would get uprooted,

For the garden was no place for two wild Catkins,

Nor were their spirits meant to be prisoners in a pot.

And so they waited,

And so they fought!

To live for their undying love,

Until their souls were set free!

I love the wildness of untamed flowers and these Catkins have a passion all of their own. There is a real sense to escape in this lovely poem Farah which I enjoyed reading.

Beautiful poem Farah. I especially loved the second last stanza. So well written. I appreciate that you chose catkins as a subject.

These two Catkins or Kashful, as we call them in Bangla, actually grew in my garden...haha and thus they were the chosen ones! In this season we have quite a lot of these growing in empty fields. They turn entire fields in whites! It is strange that these two decided to grow in my flower pot! I am so glad you liked it, John. Thank you so much for your support and appreciation.Bless you!

Hi Farah, A lovely poem, of love and wild passion trapped and longing to be free.The catkins an unlikely but very good subject to illustrate this.
