He grew out of nowhere like an unplanted bud grows in a pot over my balcony
I watered it with love and caressed it daily with
perfect light and hope
and it grew and grew and grew
gradually into a beautiful wildflower
deep under my skin
rooting around my bones
I held it close to my heart
until one day my teacher said casually,
“wildflowers can grow anywhere easily
and to protect your mains,
sometimes no matter how beautiful they look
you need pluck them off”
And after years of feeding him over my dreams
during my last days I held
my wildflower closer then before and plucked it off,
loosening my soil and freeing my soul.
How are you doing? I am doing better. Back pain is less. And feeling good. Sending hugs and wishes to everyone known and unknown
Do let me know what you liked in this poem!
You words fill my heart with immense happiness and love and motivates me to write more…
Thankyou so much for reading it.
Have a great day!
Love, Jyoti V
