    Why can't it be correct?
    I know "May your life blossom like these flowers."is correct but if we write it in the mentioned way then why can't it be correct because I mean that the life should remain blossomed not blossom.

    Re: Is the following sentence correct?

    Blossomed as a verb means to produce or yield blossoms; because of this you are literally correct. Out of context (as a single sentence) it sounds very translated however. If this is part of a poem or stanza then you are instantly allowed the leniency of poetic freedom and ‘blossomed’ doesn’t sound so ‘forced’.
