Phool Shayari

A blossom, or a flower, is an image but it is also a simile, a metaphor, and a symbol. Its various colours represent various shades of life. They also represent transience as opposed to permanence. Even though it has become a cliché but some poets have used it as a repository of many more meanings than we may imagine. You may see some of them in this selection.

koi jo puchhe to kah dunga us ne bheje hain
