A Spiritual Awakening

Hidden Blossoms

by Tootie

Like a flower unfolding,
so, too, my life
revealing splendor,
unhampered beauty.
All that once
was dormant,
contained safely within
until this moment
of maturity.

Exposed now --
as a newborn child.
Aware that this
also shall pass,
while petals fall
down to soften
and nourish
hidden blossoms
still waiting
to be formed.

Free Verse Poetry writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a free verse poem. Free verse is a form of poetry that does not necessarily follow to any specific meter patterns, rhyme, or any other pattern. Free verse, despite its freedom, often still has some elements of form. Most free verse does observe a convention of lines and structure. No rhyming patterns.

Sometimes poems are the only way to say something that is unspeakable otherwise. My poem HIDDEN BLOSSOMS was written many years ago after a spiritual awakening where I recognized the importance of giving up the fight, the ego, and all of the self-effort, and instead simply LETTING what was inside me (my real SELF) shine through naturally.
To me, it means to reveal an eternal truth and to pass it down, without judgment, to those that do not yet know who they truly are.
May this poem also speak to you in whatever way it is meant to.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
