Les Fleurs by Keisha Esprit
Les Fleurs is a set of poems that focuses on love, nature, the Caribbean, patriotism, life, friendship, family, reflection, motivation and spiritual themes. Les Fleurs is French for “the flowers.” It’s the epitome of life. Life is like a flower, with a beginning and an end. We are quite the same and start out life like a flower’s seed. We go through experiences, adapt to our atmosphere, are beautiful in our youth, and live well as long as we are fed. Eventually we grow old like the flowers that wither and lose colors and petals.
