lovely flower

as the morning sun comes out there lay a delicate flower, blooming in the gentle rays

opening slowly at first, unsure about the world outside yet wanting to stretch her lovely arms

as she opens she reveals colors that she was hiding, and lovely texture with intricate patterns

now in full bloom she takes in the full value of those morning rays, stretching further to reveal more

each passing hour marks a new stage in her development, then many days pass as she shares her beauty

 

alas as many things in this world do, that beauty fades and she retreats from her bloom and withers

once the flower is completely dried out, after all her tears have fallen, she falls to the earth

letting out a cry as she has lost from the beautiful pose she had taken for so long

leaving behind all her cares and worries she takes comfort in knowing that she has many opportunites,

there within her arms there are many more blooms waiting to be shared with the world

she is so lovely and every part of her process is marked by a wonder that fills my heart

lovely lady the flower, sharing your beauty with the world

Reminds me of Eckart Tolle

Reminds me of Eckart Tolle and how he says when upset, 'look at a flower, and connect with the essence of who you truly are" (not exactly, but same idea)


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Out In The Open

Flower, your petals are showing,

your colors are wealthy personified

as nature preening, singing.

.

The leaves below bow to majesty

hark the insects who drink

nice nectar, then take it home.

.

Come bird, blue as multiple skies,

let me be your bough,

let me become a pantheon

of brand new colors for you

and your wings that see

the entire world including me.
