~*~ To be your sunflower ~*~


How I wish I’d be
The sunflower that you want me to be



But
I am sir…
Not one given in adoration to the sun
Spend my life,
my breath
Watching it
But having none
None but its ray
And not the heart of it
coming my way



I’d be your sunflower
With that yellow
Daring hue
But would that guarantee
My having
The heart of you?

Why should I spend my days
My breath
All for your rays of light
And then
Shiver
All alone at night
As you are out of sight



Tell me sir…
Why should I direct my whole being
Towards this sun of you
Taking its golden perfect hue
Why would I open up?
My whole heart
Big and shining
So clear and bright
Easily exposed to your sight?

I would gladly let it bask
In your light
But
Knowing the sun
With all its magic bright
Soon that heart
Would burn from its all too not careful light

Oh…my sun
Showering me with light
Giving me
Only a passing delight




I’d gladly spend my life in adoration of the sun
A nun
In an alter so bright
Lost to the whole world
But to that light
If...
If it only would be a tender light
Keeping me forever
Basked in its ray
Giving me all that
I’ve dreamt to have one day



So…
Yes…sir
I’d love to be your sunflower
If I’d only have in your heart
My own magical tower
Unmatched by any other
Forever tenderly cuddled in your power
And never
Never kept away from your golden shower
And if night came my way
You’d trace it away by day
And draw a hundred smile on my face
And more
And never allow your light to burn me
Like before
Only then I’d be your magical sunflower…
And I’d forever bask in your golden shower
deriving from it all my power
and giving you happiness
unmatched by any other.

Thank you

That is an amazing poem. The graphics match so well, but even if there were no graphics, I would see those big yellow sunflowers. And the sadness of not being the main flower of someone's heart is so well written here. You deserve your day in brilliant sunshine, and to be the #1 flower. Well done, poetess.

My Melody:  a flower should open herself only of her own volition, for as you have pondered, sunshine comes and goes...  It is the roots of self that remain constant and  allow the flower the wisdom to grow and blossom into the beautiful potential dormant within.  The sun certainly may inspire, but a flower can still bloom even on overcast days.  A world without comes from a world within...  (I enjoy your multi-media approach to writing -- it's a fresh bouquet to behold, each time).

What a beautiful poem!
Nobody writes about flowers that open to moonlight  
I am feeling deeply rejected and unloved...

Oh..thank you....

But you shouldn't feel that way...there are lots and lots of poems about the magic of moonlight.....and the lovers forever basking in its light.... isn't it fair?  

Thank you sooo much....
