Transformation

Transformation

A Poem by Desert Dreamer
"

life and death among the compost

"

 

Child of the flower

stands in the sun

child of the soil

knows we are one

 

awareness of the flora

drifting in the soil

in her hands transformation

possibilities uncoil

 

bones of our ancestors

transform beneath her feet

still the flower meditates

thoughts of life running deep

 

All the dead and dying ones

compost into a song

we the ones in motion

with the music we belong

Brilliant, beautiful and a remarkable usage of figurative language and metaphors.."still the flower meditates" is a mind blowing example of personification.."compost into a song" is just a fantastic metaphor..you articulated the rhythmic cycle of life in such finesse and artfulness, that once I captured my breath after reading your poem, I became speechless and under the spell of your ingenious infusion of words all whilst having a warm smile on my face..Masterful work !

This was beautiful! The rhythm flows to carry the reader like a literary stream, through the life of a delicate organism. It is a poem that applies a truth to so many things, both living and inanimate.

Thank you for sharing your poetic soul.

Such clever beauty in your words .. you always find the right way to explain your thoughts. Life can be one long sweet song, each season has its own melody and youre so aware of that!
