Bracing to Bloom

Bracing to Bloom

A Poem by DIVYA

Deep down under the snow
Cryptic in her own glow
Sealed in gossamer skin
Smouldered, a bud solo

There in her kernel's glare
A spark in her did flare
What made her wish to bloom?
Her nascent nub to bare?

What tincture in the breeze?
What burning in the freeze?
The promise of a storm?
Or just the buzz of bees?

Or was it a sunray?
Drifting from far away?
The epilogue of fall?
A new unfettered day?

Perhaps, the hues within
As audacious as sin
Did blind her with their glint
Her moulting to begin

And so it was her bliss
Her sanctum to dismiss
Greeting the waiting sun
With an effusive kiss

Bracing herself to trust
Each vicious, windy gust
Shaking her fervid core
Her petals strewn in dust

Yet now,  she lay there free
Fallen,  but full of glee
A victor in her quest
From her own self to flee

Iambic trimeter broken up into 8 quatrains, I love the flow of this piece I had to keep myself from forgetting to pause inbetween each stanza! My favorite being the one that begins "Or was it a Sunray, drifting from far away" that is such a good stanza the use of rhyme immaculate. There is not much this poem is wanting, for save something to dislike about it !

It seems like forever since I've seen you, or read you, but this emotive piece brings all your talent into spectacular view! I think the small font helps to give it a touch of euphoria, too. I love it! Good to see you, girl!

The promise of a Storm or just the 🐝 buzz of 🐝 Bees… we are part of Nature and need to sleep and dream when flowers rest and bloom in Spring sunshine and Rain. gently, Pat

You are most Welcome… dear Poet… ❤️ Pat
The last verse seems to be the key to the poem. Why exactly does life manifest in this sometimes hostile environment? The bud is seen as a victor in her effort to flee from her own self, even though it lies tattered on the ground. But why would it seek to flee its own self? For some reason this verse puts me in mind of"Paradise Lost."

I wonder how many of us will truly live a full life to the extent where as we lay breathing our last we will be able to smile, content that we did justice to the years we were allowed to walk this beautiful planet.
A top class piece of writing Divya

Hey it’s been a while since we spoken my friend and I see you’re still making wonderful works like this. Our own inner circumstances can be what holds us back or overexert ourselves. Holding back when it’s time for change or changing to soon when it’s still time to grow. We’re all planted in gardens waiting to bloom and blossom in each season. This is a wonderful piece here every word and syllable and as always keep writing fellow writer it’s great to see you’re still bringing life to words my dear friend.
