Author’s note: My second most favored flower!
Photograph by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

Pink is the color
in little girl’s minds
Pink is the color of friendship
and love of all kinds

White is the color
of purity and chaste
Beauty from within
ultra femininity faced

Yellow is the color
of summer’s sunshine
Bringing contented happiness
and good luck to all mankind

Purple is the color
it’s the one I like best
Fosters knowledge
and courage to face all tests

Red is the color
for love, lust and blood
Anger runs bone deep
when thorns pierce life’s glove

Hibiscus is the color
the Islands bring to us
Diversity is beauty
a good lesson to trust

      1. There is no denying its beauty but we have them here in profusion and that has perhaps led us to take them for granted. You are so welcome. 😊

      2. Understood Punam. It is easy to forget what is beautiful around us, when it’s seen every day. 😊
