Delicate Flower (Jahi Trotter)


  1. Jahi, thanks for sending this poem in. I love everything about it--the word choice (delicate/queen/shower), and the rhythm with which you read it. It is so sincere and permeated with emotion. Sweet!

  2. Beautiful poem. In under 2 minutes, you told a story of love, a love that is beautiful that you refrain from ever expressing it, because the fragility of the woman you have fallen for.
