UV Rays

UV Rays

 

You are my UV rays,

I bloom with you

as I die with your back turned

I resurrect with each halo sunrise

and share my nectar with your friends

then shed my pedals for sanctuary.

 

As my seedling falls to the earth

it burrows beneath my broth

and I sprout to bloom with you again.

 

Heavy clouds advance to steal away our eyes

and plummet to the earth I draw from the rain

though this may nourish me as much as you

my roots walk towards the light.

 

You are my UV rays,

I bloom with you

  • Cheeky Missy

    Because you are clever and witty enough to signify more than readily meets the eye, though this is classified as a "love" poem, it leaves my head spinning, the imagery capably expressing the beauty of life and light in their symbiotic relationship, as it were, though in truth, they are united since the LORD is both, if I understand correctly. If this symbolises the beauty of romance between you and your beloved, fabulous rendering; if something else, fascinating and yet elusive, intriguing. Lovely and beautifully clever with wonderful imagery. I like it very much. Thanks for sharing.
