Marilena

She grew in the shadows,
This plain beauty,
A flower that was
Most likely ready to blossom.  

Or maybe she had already opened up,
And no one noticed.  But then
It was difficult to get bright blooms
In the dimness where she was rooted.  

Either way, she
Was only
Discovered
When a person of discernment
Ventured down the road
Where she lived and
Noticed the
Glow leaking
From the shadows,
Out of the darkness
Of her cave.  

It was then that
Marilena was lifted
Out.

Marilena...grown in the shadows, but blooming, never the less.  This poem could be about birth, rebirth, death, rescue, escape or simply natural growth.  It doesn't really matter, unless it matters to you.   When I first read the poem to husband, James, he said "I like it!  I don't have any idea what it means, but I like it."  Well you may feel the same way.  It's a poem to think about for sure.  I would love to hear your opinions.  skp
