Pure seeds will disembark capricious winds,
are littered from the flight of birds by chance,
the roots so fine and fragile can't rescind
trust then is in the rain, sun, happenstance
A subtle stem in shyness moves aloft,
vulnerable it merely wants to live,
it longs that life for it is naught but soft
and time allows the beauty that it gives
With luck paternal sun will warm it's way,
maternal rain will nourish her along,
sweet zephyrs shall encourage dance in sway
and birds provide the music for her song
For beauty's even coveted by trolls
whose heavy hands more Steinbeck's mice than men
are attached to heartless blackened souls
who seek control of beauty's how and when
and so they wrench the flower from the stem
they bruise the petal opened in Love's light
their curse is that the beauty was for them
flinched flower recoils from beastly night
Eventually the ogre moves along
with no respect to unsuspecting fields
trampled in his wake's a flower wronged
and fear she think's the payoff to her yield;
Allow me to state the obvious....
you just took, rhyme,(internal rhymes) cadence, vocab, verbiage, assonance, alliteration, poetic phrasing, imagery, personification, theme, metaphor,(extended metaphor) analogy, expression, emote, conflict and resolution to most impressive heights.
I'm quite sure there is much more here that my lacking of poetic terms has missed...as well as my being giddy from the poetic pleasures of reading this.
very very well done poet sir.
Tell me we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
Ill be captivated, Ill hang from your lips
Instead of the heartache from above
