Pot Pourri

Picture a multitude of richly scented pots of dried out flowers. Each an original mix.

It downed on me that each human being can be compared to a pot pourri. What a weird statement, you will say. Seriously though, let’s strike a bargain, you hear me out before you dismiss it, does that sound fair? Still reading? Good on you, guys. Cheers for being sports.

So where were we? Oh yes, I got it.

Back to the pots – the heart of the matter.

Picture them empty – save for one item we’ll mention later.

Every single person we meet deposits a fresh petal in the pot, and with time, the whole thing mixes and merges. Its flavors rest there, constantly evolving, matching who we are.

Whether it be a lily, a thistle or a rose, a forget-me-not or just some blade of grass, all the people we encounter leave their imprint on us. These premises account for part of who we are.

Possibly arranged around a golden core, covering a precious pearl, or yet some other gem stone, they would form the allegorical fabric of our hearts.

So tell me, now, does it all sound as weird as it first seemed?

P.S.: I would love to hear your reaction.

      1. Mr Poet? Ha.

        I tried to think of what I would be in that bowl and I couldn’t come up with anything. A scent if you will. Either strong or weak. Probably weak. You?

      2. Yeah you are a poet and a mister, so I put one and one together. If you don’t like it, it can be the last time I use it ^^

        I have met strong and sweet people, violent and caring ones. I believe I have gentle, yet heady smell, if that is a possible combination.

      3. soft and heady is a good combination. Like patchouli, maybe too heady 🤔
        Hope you’re having a great day/night where you be.

    The experiences that we went through and the people that we met shape us in which is similar to the Pot Pourri. It is those who we mix we that teach us valuable lessons which is empowering in our life.
