In the seeds of sunflowers

Between the fibers
of this page,
an ancient magic
has been laid

Pressing leaves
with mystical power,
kissing the corners
to grow sunflowers

Cherish a word
a wish or rhyme,
making it grow
deep in your mind

Taking the letters
that are your divine,
weave them into
a master design

Make your own mold
and pour yourself in,
to not be yourself
is the greater of sins

Feel the earth
beneath your feet,
build your own kingdom
a heartlands retreat

With the gift of hands
you can shape a world,
and the only barrier
is what your mind holds

Sowing the seeds
you collected through life,
tend them with love
they will flourish with light

Dream with your heart
and ever be true,
the universe will gather
just to know you

After searching for faults
letting pride blind my eyes,
I stripped off all masks
to soar a blue sky

Now planting my seed
with love in my sight,
I wish it to flourish
a precious long life

Covering these pages
in tendrils sublime,
Thus binding loves magic
I send it through time

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

so now you click on edit and go to the workshop box and highlight fixed verse

add all future poems this way - all workshop poems go into an extra stream as well as the main stream - and each workshop stream is found at the right hand side of the workshop page

I really enjoyed the line 'make your own mold and pour yourself in'...like you can take on any form...I like the allusion in that. I'm sure this will be thoroughly critiqued in Judyanne's workshop, but as she said, it's a good model to start with. I'm still not confident enough with quatrains...but i'll get there and let Judyanne rip it up! LOL

Ells x

I didnt write this one in any particular form, I just wrote it, I have been playing on and off with this poem for nearly two years, its time it got finished lol
