A Chance Brush

A Chance Brush

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

A Chance Brush

 

She said

Please don’t pick the flowers

Every bud tries as hard to bloom

As you

 

He said

These stack gifts her hours

Reverie cast these eyes to plume

 Imbue

 

I said

She’s sown seeds to tower

Treasures passed breathes cries pursue

Renew

Your first stanza echoes in my mind becuz I relate to it so much. One of my pet peeves are people who feel that natural beauty (vegetation, wildlife, or landscape) must be plucked or changed to suit mankind. Then your last stanza is a reminder that beauty can be freely cultivated as a steady presence for renewal, for all, instead of being plucked (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks Susan:) I love what you did with it too
I love the message here. Growth and renewal does the soul good. This fine piece reminds me of the chance brush stroke on the painting that transforms arts and crafts to a pivotal masterpiece. Really enjoyed reading your perspective on here. Great read.

The beauty of the earth is to be enjoyed not taken from the ground to die in your home ;-] Nicely expressed.

Golden words are written here Bad Bunny. All life counts. Classic, graceful language. Pristine and intricate style, form, rhyme, cadence. I hear the sweet musicality of lute and lyre in this song-poem. Tendrils of lines wrap around and entrance. “She said..He said..I said...As you..Imbue..Renew”- poems within poems... One to cherish, savor, save and remember. Thank you my friend.

Hey hey and you are so supremely welcome B.B.! Thank you for your kindness and good heart.:))
oh wow dear Bunny! I feel this as the cycle of life, You reap what You grew, it means even if she picked up some flowers, she deserves them as long as she will plants another seeds for them to grow, or she deserves them because she already planted them, this is not only about flowers but everything in life, hard work will birth gifts.

to You and Him, many Hugs****
The poem is kind of like the cycle of seasons itself, or, perhaps more specifically, the renewal experienced in spring. I like the way it works to articulate the truth (as I’ve experienced it) that every action feathers out creating whole worlds of consequence and experience.

I tend to think that each person’s life is like a separate world and no one can experience life in just that same way. I’m probably explaining that poorly, but your poem seems to offer a triptych of experience with each voice offering up its unique take on the subject of reverence or perhaps sacredness. I like that it holds out the everyday as an example of how we impact one another without necessarily seeking that as an end goal. Just sharing wisdom and seeing it filtered through each of those worlds.

I really like the thought. It’s enriching. Lovely picture too.

thanks I truly believe that I am
This is a beautiful poem Bunny and it echoes what both my Nan and my Mum would say to me as a child. Look at them in their natural surroundings and enjoy their beauty, but do not spoil them by picking them. You took me back a few years I can tell you. I love it when flowers self seed and spring up year on year. Your lines here are quite exquisite.

Man-oh-man!
I tell ya, Dear Gene,
As a lifelong devoted connoisseur of poetic forms, I think yours here is second to none.
From its amazingly formatted and entertaining rhyme-scheme, from top to bottom, and end to end; then, by allowing us to follow along with, "She said, He said, and I said" … "As You Imbue, Renew!" By introducing, finalizing, and personalizing each verse, it is sheer genius.
You inspired an olde teacher's eye with a coupl'a thoughts I'll share by PM. ; )
From title, picture to beautiful flow and imagery, the tug of emotion, thought, and feeling, along with downright admiration, this one fills the bill to a tee … maybe, your best (so far), but i've scant doubt you'll soon eclipse that notion.

What's really been fun for me is watching the growing friend and fan following list you've developed since joining … I LOVE IT! ⁓ Richard 🍃
