Flower Cover

Flower Cover …

cover

Is a vacuum really nothingness?

The true beginning that we will see

A planted seed with subsequence

A conception new, no flaws and free

 

But, like a cloud encased by shadow

the darkness seeks to choke the light

With ignorance such darkness shows

And corrupts the world with night

 

But light, though infinitesimal, flowers,

A brilliant flight from the tunnel grows

Unstained and teeming with power

upon the earth it shines and soughs

 

With seeds unleashed upon the plains

From darkness, it begins to show.

Petals like eyelids open through strain

Synaptic bursts surging to-and-fro

 

Raw emotions grow and correlate

Like rain with tears, and joy to sun

With time the body maturates

And blossoms, but not everyone

 

Not every sapling is bound to ascend

Not all will kiss the sun up close.

Not all will rake the ocean’s end

Not all will hail the heaven’s host

 

Those young allowed to grow and spread

Will grant soon the shade and food to grow

their tree branch cover from overhead

Will protect all those who live below

    Looking deeply into “Growing” and its subtle aspects. This was the pathway I found through your Poem : Flower Cover. (as this work appeared to me…!?) Enjoyed it. “Those young allowed to grow and spread” For sure…you said it excellently. All…Growth is a narrow passageway…when one steps back and looks at it from a distance…and studies “Growth”. I will read this one many more times!

      Thank you so much. This is what I love about writing, everyone can come to their own conclusions about your writing. I sometimes try to leave things open to interpretation I love hearing everyone’s point of view. I’m glad you enjoyed this. Appreciate your comments.
