Who would want to be a stunted bonshai
It’s branches trimmed to conformity
And placed conspicuously
In a polished brass pot?
I’d rather be a creeper,
Growing wild on the hillside
Smiling in the sun
Drenched by the rain
And breaking into blossoms
Over the moss covered rocks
And when the winter came
Why, I’d fold my leaves and hide
Till Spring smiled on me again

I’m not a magician
But I weave dreams
And they then create
A beautiful world , for me

I’m not a musician
But the song of streams
In my soul reverbrates
And I feel unbound and free

I’m not a religious person
But my swelling heart redeems
And in the love that within me pulsates
I get a glance of divinity.

    wonderfully expressed the desire to be free still being in this world…the wish to explore and live the inquisitive nature outside and within..

    I’ve always loved bonsai, but you’ve given me a new perspective. Maybe I can still enjoy looking at them, while also appreciating the fact that I’m not stunted, trimmed, and potted. Much better to be “growing wild on the hillside.” Beautiful poem.

    Just reading some old posts and I came upon a comment that you made..then I realized that I had not seen any of your posts and wondered why.
    I looked for the follow button
    but no sign.

    I looked for the email bit but found none so I am hoping that ticking the box below will work

    I love your blog, your words, your pictures, the way your poetry makes me feel. There is a gentle peace in them and subtle sadness but blended nicely with hope and happiness. Truly an inspiring place to come read.

    Nadira, I’ve just subscribed. I’m thrilled to find you. I have too many feeling words jockeying for position right now – they would fall out like rambunctious children full of too many sweets. I will share my delight as we walk this blog road together. (And I see Victoria – live2write2day – is one of your readers, too! Two peas in a pod.)
