Free Verse: Life Unfurled

In this free verse poetry, “Life Unfurled”.

To see how big, or how small one’s own self is; take a walk on the wild side. Step outside of the sidewalk, the city lights, its hustle, and bustle. Step into a place that speaks of green places, of euphoria through inhaling fragrances that linger on a teasing breeze. Watch life unfurl before your seeing eyes.

Life Unfurled

The eye sees, the green
Coiling, curling forward.
The gentle ease of fronds
Fingers. In the forest,
Tall standing trees, witness of
Mother Earth, infinitive wilderness.
She awaits another birth.

Hanging hearts and old vines
Lay claim upon branches,
The dew drops water parched ground
Smiling childhood wonders.

Flush of eroding pink fragrance
catches open noses.
Prickly wild red rose wanders,
upward and over.
Of dead limbs, darken moisten
coverage for hovering umbrellas.
Creepy crawling legs sprawl across lines.

Open and closed spaces
Blue is its vast breath
Shaped balloons drift slowly
To the temptress breeze

The slow, uncurling, opening
Toward warming yellow glow
Unfurl, the life above and below
towards a light, or truth
yielding an open ground unearthed
and of where these roots and feet bound.
Hand and branch, we toil.
