Beloved Flower Lover,
Love poems are never dated. Love poems are never unimportant and especially if we are feeling overwhelmed, lonely and wanting to let go of what not works anymore, they are worth investing in. Love Poems can help lead you back to your own heart!
In a time where some of us feel like the system does not care, that we get services from people who do not care. In a time where some of us feel like we are in a system that uses ever cheaper and less workers and is like a race to the cheapest mechanised process. We might want to explore how useful is the industrialised management story about speed, cost, efficiency. Seth Godins (see below) has invited us to consider if it’ s really worth the story we are telling ourselves. The story of more speed, scalability and ever more cheaper stuff. Is it really a story that we are prepared to continue. One where we actually become dehumanized!
Are we no longer in an industrial age?
Is it an era which is over.?
Some say it is, like the voice of Seth Godin.
He, like others say we in a time of creating, rather than producing products at more speed, more scale, and much more cheaply. We wonder, do we still want to conform to this idea of greater productivity of mass media, mass production and interchangeable parts .In such a way where we end up looking for other groups of people around the world to do our work for us even more cheaply. Do we want that anymore?
Seth Godin and the art of flowers and love poems by Hafiz have come forward today as part of the conversation. The art of Connection Cconomy!
The door of the Connection Economy has opened!
We have been looking at poems that are far from standardised. Love poems are in fact a study of self love, rather than conforming to ‘social messages’ which encourage self deprecation. Love poems are radical at this time, as they are not about conforming to the ideas of what it is to be a person in the standard industrialised world. Instead it invites people to dream and are beyond conformity to mass standards of the industrialised age,
Who takes the place of talking about the non industrialised world. Who celebrates what we dream about? who?
It seems that its us, the people instead, have the permission to do so!
We have taken a stance where as masters of flower arranging and flower design, we exchange an energy of art, the creation of meaning and value with you.
Pick yourself-you are the artiste of love and flowers can accompany that process, much like the poem of your choice.
Flowers can remind us that things can change for the better as we read a poem. Flowers can show that we care enough to connect through love. To tell stories of our day dreams. Flowers helps us with the connection between us.
Connecting with each other is what our lives are about. Especially with a time of mass love, there is a time of mass loneliness. Yes we said it. Mass loneliness is the elephant in the room.
Flowers help us to make meaning out of our lives-for ourselves. Flowers help us to feel valued-for ourselves. Not waiting to be picked by someone else,but for ourselves. We pick ourselves with loving care! The benefit is that we feel transformed.
Giving flowers to some one else with enthusiasm is wonderful. Giving them to ourselves helps us to leverage our own energy.It’s a legitimate to give ourselves flowers.It’s just as good to choose ourselves with love. And we all feel better-as we expose our repertoire of love!
We selected our own collection of a few love poems from Hafiz. We have curated those poems with flowers as we extend our love to you!
I Want Both Of Us
I want both of us
To start talking about this great love
As if you, I, and the Sun were all married
And living in a tiny room,
Helping each other to cook,
Do the wash,
Weave and sew,
Care for our beautiful
We all leave each morning
To labor on the earth’s field.
No one does not lift a great pack.
I want both of us to start singing like two
About this extraordinary existence
You, I, and God were all married
And living in
Like Passionate Lips
So many positions of
Each curve on a branch,
the thousand different ways
Your eyes can embrace us,
The infinite shapes your
Mind can draw,
Orchestra of scents,
The currents of light combusting
Like passionate lips,
The revolution of Existence’s skirt
Whose folds contain other worlds,
Your every sign that falls against
Imagination Does Not Exist
You should come close to me tonight wayfarer
For I will be celebrating you.
Your beauty still causes me madness,
Keeps the neighbours complaining
When I start shouting in the middle of the night
Because I can’t bear all this joy.
I will be giving birth to suns.
I will be holding forests upside down
Gently shaking soft animals from trees and burrows
Into my lap.
What you conceive as imagination
Does not exist for me.
Whatever you can do in a dream
Or on your mind-canvas
My hands can pull – alive – from my coat pocket.
But let’s not talk about my divine world.
For what I most want to know
I Got Kin
So that your own heart
So God will think,
I got kin in that body!
I should start inviting that soul over
For coffee and
Because this is a food
Our starving world
Because that is the purest
These are just a few art poems, with a few flowers, which allow us to hear our selves. Our heart,your heart, the heart of love!
The London Flower Lover
p.s. perhaps if watch the Seth Godin video in small chunks of time, its a little longish! We see it as a chat about the return to the connecting an economy to the art of love.We wonder what you make of it!
