“Flower Song” by Omar H. Malik is published
A celebration in poetry and pictures of the beauty of flowers
About the Book:
In times of frenetic demand for instant gratification, where habitual haste often blinkers us from the splendour of the world around us, the author conjures an unhurried perspective on the most beautiful of all nature’s gifts, the flower.
With images captured by his camera and captioned by his words, FLOWER SONG is the third book of poetry by the author. His other two books “REFLECTIONS: Mirror of my Mind” and “REFLECTIONS: Rhyme and Reason” are both available from Amazon.
Foreword from the Author:
There are literally thousands of flowers to choose from; why did I pick these few for the purpose of this book? My reason for the selection is that perhaps we are generally familiar with these in average modest English gardens, woodlands and meadows. I suppose an element of personal bias, unwittingly, might have crept in. Numbers are also somewhat restrictive considering the size of the book.
This is the second edition of the book with many more new titles added and also few original ones revised. All photographs are my own except “Buddleia and Butterfly” beautifully captured by my granddaughter, Jessica, at the age of twelve.
Excerpt from the book:
Weather’s warm and fair, sky’s clear,
Spring’s in the air and Daisies appear
In the fields and on the meadows
Under the sun and in the shadows
Countless blooms and many more
Pure white petals and a golden core;
Few imposters in painted petals, colourful,
Mingling, dancing together and playful.
As the morning sun begins to rise
Daisies, slowly, unfolding their eyes
Greeting walkers and joggers joyfully,
Then, pleading ‘please tread carefully’.
Unbending and enduring plucking pains
As children, unaware, making Daisy chains;
And when the sun sets under the sky west
At day’s end eyes closed for night’s rest.”
