Fragrant Flower

A woman, like a flower
awakes with morning sun.
Her smile will shine each hour
until the work is done.
But when she is offended,
by chance or by design;
Her world is then upended
she offers no more wine.
So here is my wise insight:
Embrace these words of mine.
Imbue your words with light
and once again she’ll shine.
