Bright Bloom

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #248 – The Result of April Showers
“Write a “flower” poem. It could be a particular flower, a favored bloom. It could be a flowering of a sort, not necessarily plant related. Make the flower your title and water and nurture your poem with your vision in words.

She grew from a seed
planted by two,
into a bloom that lit
up rooms when she
entered. Blue-black
hair, wide wise eyes,
sensuous lips. She
sun-sparkled, silver dust
brushed off on all
the people she charmed–
young and old. But,

petals became damaged,
ravaged by darkness
of the mind. Life
was unkind. She could
not find her way out
of the maze. The bloom
withered; the flower died.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
