Sampaguita

Like twinkling stars above

little white petals mold as diamonds

fragrance of fresh sweet fruit

touching sense as those soft cottons.

They make a gorgeous lace around neck

and garlands dangling from the deck.

They make of everything we want

giving selections far from blunt.

Indeed, they rise among others

with simplicity and purity.

A little kind of flower

big enough to symbolize our country.

Our theme for this week was given by Devika. She suggested we post simple significant things in our country or our opinions regarding different matters and I chose flower.
