And just which "pink cheeks" would we be referring to here, Anonymous Poet, heh-heh?
The ones at the top, or those at the bottom?
Perhaps even both.
Nice 5-7-5.
Good luck to you in the contest.

    Thanks for your great review rating. As you'll see below the poem in my author's notes, it explains that Naked Lady is a common name for the Amaryllus flower.
    I'm glad I gave you a bit of a chuckle.

Hi :)
I really enjoyed your poem. The imagery is fun! I love your choice of the word 'cavorting'.
You meet the contest criteria and your presentation is lovely.
Good use of alliteration in line 3.
Good luck in the voting booth.
Kind regards, Debra

    Thanks so much Debra. Aren't words fun!... I like 'cavorting' myself (although not naked in a garden).

Thank you for sharing. Robert Frost once said "Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words." It would seem to me this continues to ring true. What interesting visual images you are creating here! I also appreciate the author's notes, where I almost always learn something new.

    Thank you for your generous review.
    Robert Frost had it spot on in explaining what Poetry is, and I try to capture that essence myself, although still very inexperienced at writing poetry. Your comments are very encouraging.

I really like how you characterize these blooms as "naked ladies cavorting in the garden." Because of their pink cheeks I can visualize them as Rubenesque nymphs. May I suggest changing your title to the actual name of the flower so the reader doesn't' have to rely on the picture or your notes?

    How interesting that you imagined Rubenesque nymphs... I love art and I also imagined them as figures from a painting.
    I take on board your change of title comment, although that would give the game away immediately perhaps.... let people imagine humans before they grasp it is about flowers.

    I am trying to work out how to use the advanced editor so i can make the font size larger and my presentation can be even better.

If there was no artwork here then my imagination ran a little riotous! But since this is about the flowers then I shall calm down and not think this is about a nudist camp. A sweet innocent poem about the flowers in the garden, I wish you luck with the contest, love Dolly x

    Thanks for lots of stars.
    Tee hee, you got the double entendre.
    I entered but then thought maybe the contest entry should be about a single flower, not a plural group.
