U is for Unfurling

dear heart.
Let the light in.

You've concealed enough over time.
Memories and regrets
Anger and threats
that lurk inside the chambers
have played their part:
let them out.

dear heart;
one petal at a time

He shouts.
She whines.
They splinter and join.
You shed tears
of despair,
is it joy?
Round and round
the cycle goes.
Let it flow.
This is life
you know
like the blood
that throbs
and makes you, you.

dear heart.
Let your flower shine.

Step out of your cocoon:
the one you wove
to protect you.
It's your prison, you know.
Listen to me
dear heart.

I dance to your beat
And when you
I will too.

I invite you to unfurl with these beauties today...

Maybe, I'm beginning to see what she means.

  1. Arti, you have quite a gift for poetry!

    What camera are you using for your photos? They always look so professional.

    1. Thank you Shelly:) Reading your sweet words is a good start to my day.
      It's gonna be different in May.
      Wonder if we'll miss this daily dose of blogging!
      I use my daughter's camera (she bought it and I took it!) It's a Canon G12. I love it coz it's easy to carry around. I still haven't figured out how to take night shots with it, though.

  2. Yes, that sounds like a good plan.

  4. I wish there was a challenge not just for a month Arti !

    You're simply amazing !

    I think you should and must begin writing on a full-time basis .

    Love all your blogs and poems and pics - the complete package deal that you are .����

    1. If I go any more full time Sharmila, I'll be declared 'crazy'. This challenge has consumed me (in a good way, though). Thank you for your encouragement. I hope to keep up with the writing part, posting...we will see how it goes in May.

  5. The opening of the flower creates a great visual for your poem - lovely.
