Sunlight shadows

Witness the vibrant marriage of flowers and foliage

blessed by gold rings of Sun’s holy passionate kiss.

Yet a pensive and foreboding mood hovers in the air

with scatterings of surprise and imminent doom.

Beneath the bright colors and reflective gloss

lurks an ominous shadow, divined by the oracle.

Butterflies and bees in their absence, echo in silent breeze.

The message gathers wings and flies with birds among the trees.

Onlookers passing by, are deceived by this dazzling beauty,

the holy matrimony of the Sun and his captive concubines.

They lend tacit applause with no understanding of Flowers’ plight.

Though brilliant in its shine, the Sunlight is unbearably harsh.

If they would care to look a little closer, they would discover

that the Sun is sometimes a cruel and unforgiving lover.

Picking his favorite flower and flaunting her eminence

while cursing her flaws beneath his heated, bitter breath.

Yet the flowers honor their vows, staying true to their promise

“Until death do us part” while they stand firm in their courage,

their faith upheld in the belief that everything must change.

The moon will arrive with tender care and Weather brings relief.

So carry their burdens as they must ,while in the universe they do trust,

that Sun will always give them life and for as long as they have this-

Hope is always in sight for a new day of vivacious, thriving blossoms

that will bring the butterflies and bees fluttering and humming back.

      1. You’re most welcome, Chevvy. N’aww, it’s perfectly alright. I, myself am shuffling between college, studies, writing, and blogging. Sometimes, things get a wee bit difficult for me, as well. But, it’s hard to stay away from this amazing world of blogosphere. 😀

  2. Beautiful poetry🌹 For some reason it reminds me of a couple or marriage that people idealize as the perfect relationship but behind close door neither partners are happy. They’re each looking for a relief. It’s probably a far stretch but that’s where my thoughts went. Wonderful writing🍁🍂🍃🌾

    1. Thanks for you lovely comment Deanne. I guess that’s the beauty of poetry. In many instances I do play with words but it is also true that many marriages are imperfect and need the butterflies and the bees to keep them going. I guess the old adage of “no bed of roses” applies – it needs commitment from both parties and is far more than than the glitz and glamour of a wedding.🌻🌻🌻
