Reciprocal Bloom

Listen to Ivy read Reciprocal Bloom

 

the blossom doesn’t beg the bee

to love it full attentively

wise to its prize

dons no disguise

imperfect it still blooms

 

such is my need on darker days

to love our love whose wants are brave

protect respect

while fueling fire

beneath a sacred moon

 

you come to see my spirits high

to love as one who gifted flight

and when i fall

your words escape

to cradle my lost muse

 

reminds me to reach for your hand

to love the sway within our dance

our rhythms rich

our spirits lithe

harmonious our tune

 

within imperfect passions rise

to love our ever-changing life

vision unclear

yet knows the way

to brighter earthen hues

 

the blossom doesn’t beg the bee

to love it full attentively

wise to its prize

dons no disguise

it loves as i love you
