grasp

grasp digital illustration by shan bae

hands gripping
hoping to feel more or less
unable to fathom security
safe enough to experience confidence 
redressing silk skin with admirations
vulnerability would be death

stem

you stalk me
hands like stems
expressing fruit
water my mind
shine your light
a recipe for growth
a seed you planted
i bloom for you

staggered

staggered by shan bae

out of my hands now
a war i dare not wage
the cost; a hefty penny
the peace kept
an escape from chaos
a tumultuous cage

sunflower

your tongue a flower
a daisy spitting seeds
with knowledge to sow
blossoming truths
leaving clouds of rain
to exhale transpiring memories

sunflower by shan bae

palmystree

palms with chased lines
sewn hands
a new leaf
in shade, surrendering
breathing in
photosynthesize
solar beams
rooted deep
beneath
grasping wisdom

aguah

loose grip
confined under pressure
unraveling to sprout
above ground
to grow anew
annual flower
a forgotten bloom
expressing to heal a way

aguah created by shan bae

maturation

maturation created by shan bae

rippened flesh
fruit of labor
a seed of fruition
coming to be
budding
maturing
to no end
