What if I, in seeking bloom

And beauty of my own,

Chose to let the Sonlight leak

Through skin, and flesh, and bone;

Umbrella of unusual form,

Transparent, not opaque –

To all the souls beneath my care,

What difference that would make!

    I like your use of: “Sonlight” instead of, “Sunlight”, it gives so much power to you poem.
    Lovely photo too.
