You Will Not Shut Me Down!

I stand alone in this crowd.

You play judge and jury here;

You resent the way I bloom,

My scent, in you, breeds fear.

You will attempt the shift,

Carve my beauty to mimic you –

But you will not shut me down,

To my blossoms, I am true…

  1. Melody, I’m an astrologer.

    This poem is a profound meditation to some transits going on with planet Venus and the Lilith position lately. Lilith was Adam’s first wife, who banished herself from He and Eden when her inherent being was not recognized or honored in her relationship with Adam. Meanwhile, Venus is contemplating relationships and plucking the dead from live blossoms from her sentimental bouquets.

    “Carve my beauty to mimic you” ~ this and “My scent, in you, breeds fear” ~ amazing lines.

    With all those beautiful flowers surrounding you, I bet no one can shut you down šŸ™‚ They can give such a boost to one’s positivism.

    For me this is about the strength and resilience in nature; the wonderful truth that although mankind might destroy huge areas of nature, it will always grow back in the end completely oblivious of whatever happens to be going on around it. Wonderful job!
