Violet Vibrancy Poem (for Rebel Guy’s Flower Power Sunday)

Hello Readers.

I was over at the rebel guy/rebel girl blog (here) and after skimming the “Flower Power Sunday” post I told RG that the ending photo made me want to write.

I decided to follow that impulse and here is what I came up with:

Poem: Violet Vibrancy

When I was younger

I was filled with ideas

     on a quest

ready to erupt on the world

   vibrancy; naivety

The years came

                       years went

storms flew fast

storms swirled slow

                          to the left

              to the left

      to the left

then to the right…

   Growth

       each passing season

God’s grace

generously given

replenishment

d e e p  replenishment

       absorption

healing saturation

     Led to now

violet vibrancy…

bloom unfolding

       quietly bursting

               slowly doing life

Having something to give

                        feels so good

yet this violet vibrancy

       only whispers

of what is layered here

             FULL

     Of Beautiful Life

Happy Sunday everyone.

    1. well the compliment is fully received and I never mind when someone says something repeated or even just “nice post” works for me – I am truly grateful to share this – and Woolly – those 17 years that you mentioned flew by would be the “to the left to the left to the left” part….

    1. gracias Dan – and love how you say “in the right hands” – -ha ha – but I guess the good news is that there is room for “different strokes for different folks”

  1. Yvette, this is a wonderfully striking post. The photograph launches itself at the reader, tugging us in. I love the poem, its path of reflection from the past to the present…of our dreams, and how we live our lives. The layout of the poem is superb and works so well…mimicking the left and right, highligting in bold, lengthening the gap in the word ‘deep’. Very clever and effective. Well done!
