The Ladybug's Whisper

And the ladybug placed a caressing whisper into dragonfly’s ear,
“I want to fly again. I crave to flap my tiny wings towards sunset’s crux. 
I want to breathe again. I want to be held like winds within canyon’s dialect.”

“But, first, I just need to scream.”

…

Let me be your breeze.

In
One
Fell
Swoop

…

The power to swim!
The power to grin!
The desire to never, ever fall again!

Let us embrace conundrum’s waterfall to be its resolution!
Let us allow joy to be our bedtime lullabies!
Let us let love IN without full moon’s dependency!

Ride on this impeccable jet stream towards animosity’s downfall!

Look in the face of your beautiful enemies
Daring it to stand above pedestal’s fallacy
Let your radiance be their final intimacy!

Take incipient steps,
Upon mended asphalt wishes

Let them tremble at the sight of your beautifully embattled smile
Knowing they will never reciprocate

Where desert winds kneel in our reflections
For we are an oasis
Forged of blood diamonds; sacrificial memories

Breezes become gusts
Gusts become worshipped exhales

All that I am!
All that you are!
All that they hope to be!

Our Yin & Yang
Will release proverbial boomerangs
Breaking vicious circles upon this genesis

We sway above greener pastures.

Gusts become breezes.

One
Fell
Swoop

Breaking enigmatic mirrors to see your true colors
With a scream to paint your new canvas

…

The time is now,
Let your two feet become one.

Rise, my ladybug!
Rise

Say goodbye
To detrimental trials

And caress newfound trust
Within a gentle

S				E
       M		 L
                 I

    gosh, I never saw this cool poem yet! I love ladybugs and I like how you used that delightful bug as a metaphor. For girl rising contest?

    Nope, not for a contest. This was a little dedication. That's all. :) Thank you so much, Andrea!!

    Hey there, Linda. I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed this. It took me a few moments to get that "Smile" looking like one when I was posting it on PS, but it worked. I think it's a good shape to fall for. Thank you so much.

  1. Date: 5/17/2013 1:03:00 PM

    Drake... I don't believe this was a poem... this was an experience. You took me far and away with your words, and I just adore the way you elegantly weave your words to not just create images in the figurative sense... but also quite literally with that "SMILE" at the end! I wish I could think like you, creating these "on the spot" imagination-trips... beautiful! You are filling up my faves once again... and like your poem shows me too... I'm smiling :)
