# Bounteous Beauty (A Haiku)

Since my riddles typically rhyme, I wanted to try my hand at another form of poetry. I hope you enjoy.

Strong scents give me life
Pleasing to the eye, I give
Each day a fresh breath

Carefully managed
I'll lead you to a new friend
A beauty blossomed

Look and be amazed
So fleeting, symbol immortal
Kaleidoscopic

What am I?

Hint:

You see me each day
If not you live a sad life
Go out and find me.

• This riddle is indeed special. DVL8 $\color{darkorange}{\bigstar}$ :D – Mr Pie Sep 12 '18 at 15:58

Are you

Flowers?

Strong scents give me life

Flowers usually smell nice (some of them have other strong smells).

Pleasing to the eye, I give

They are pleasing to the eye.

Each day a fresh breath

Giving somebody flowers is a nice way to start their day.

Carefully managed

If you take care of them...

I'll lead you to a new friend

They might be pollinated to create more flowers.

A beauty blossomed

Flowers are beautiful and blossom.

Look and be amazed

Lots of flower festivals.

So fleeting, symbol immortal

Flowers are symbols for a lot of things, they are fleeting and die every year.

Kaleidoscopic

They come in a rainbow of colours.

The secret hint

Is SPECIAL, which would be the kind of person I’d give flowers to.

The other hint:

You see me each day
People see flowers every day.
If not you live a sad life
Because you’re always inside with no plants.
Go out and find me.
Flowers are outside.

• This is what I was looking for, good job! – Joe-You-Know Sep 13 '18 at 15:06
• Nice answer if this didn't get accepted I was going to answer the woods for the each day a fresh breath to be trees that produce oxygen and then include plants for the others :p. – mrdeadsven Sep 13 '18 at 15:16

Are you

Wheat or Cereal Grains?

Strong scents give me life
Pleasing to the eye, I give
Each day a fresh breath

Wheat fields are photogenic and cereal gives each day a new start (ie. breakfast).

Carefully managed
I'll lead you to a new friend
A beauty blossomed

Carefully managed, you can grow fields of wheat and use the grains for anything.

Look and be amazed
So fleeting, symbol immortal
Kaleidoscopic

Wheat only lasts less than a year; but it is an immortal symbol of farming.

This is a stretch and a half, but

Your acrostic of SPECIAL K (SPECIAL S[pace] K) kinda got me hooked.

• I see you took the acrostic literally. A very interesting answer, but not what I'm looking for. – Joe-You-Know Sep 12 '18 at 15:11

Another guess

Rainbow

Strong scents give me life Pleasing to the eye, I give Each day a fresh breath

Umm they are pretty.

Carefully managed I'll lead you to a new friend

At the end of the rainbow!

A beauty blossomed

They are amazing to look at.

Look and be amazed So fleeting, symbol immortal

God used a rainbow to say no more floods across the earth.

Kaleidoscope

If you type in synonyms for kaleidoscope you get rainbow!

• I'm not sure the first line fits with this answer. But this is pretty cool. – Joe-You-Know Sep 12 '18 at 15:31

Are you a

Strawberry

Strong scents give me life

They are sweet.

Pleasing to the eye, I give

Bright and red.

Each day a fresh breath

Fresh strawberries are awesome.

Carefully managed

Grown in a farm.

I'll lead you to a new friend A beauty blossomed

More fruit, maybe other forms of strawberries(jam, ice cream)?

Look and be amazed So fleeting, symbol immortal Kaleidoscopic

They are bright.

Acrositc

They are in special K.

• A great answer, but truth be told, the K for the acrostic isn't actually part of it. I needed an extra line to make the third haiku. I hope that helps. – Joe-You-Know Sep 12 '18 at 15:17
