and passionate souls
are the flowers here.
in this harsh world,
the way you feel and pour it all out,
leaving bright and vulnerable
beauty all around,
the artists and lovers,
intense feelers and wild dreamers,
with your soft and aching hearts…
i know it gets heavy and can feel
hard to be how you are,
but you are the flowers here…
so please… be just how you are.“
– butterflies rising
Finally officially published on January 8, 2024, the butterflies rising poem ‘the sensitive and passionate souls are the flowers here’, was actually written in 2021 as an accompanying poem to her poem ‘just like flowers‘ that is published in ‘she’s flowers and fire’. Back in 2021, she didn’t quite feel the poem was ready or saying what she wanted to express, and it felt too close to the other poem in working, so she left the poem be in her phone for over 2 years, until it called back to her in January 2024. She didn’t end up changing it much from the original version, but it just finally felt right and so she finally shared it.
