Umbrella

Push me to face the menacing sunlight.
My shadow is your sanctuary.
Leave me to suffer relentless lashes of rain.
Take refuge in my hollow body.

If you will look up you can see.
I have breakable bones,
And they stretch my seasoned skin.
Oh will you look inside me please?

I anger the Gods for ugly weather,
And you will hold my hand a little longer,
Before you toss me into a concealed corner,
And move on as it gets brighter.

Lifeforms.

Once in a few full moons,
I’d speak with a Butterfly.
He would flutter around me.
His wings albeit dull coloured,
Evocated vibrant sweet memories,
And I was summoned back to Nature
As the pollen he dropped sprang into a lovely flower.

I wandered about Nature, ever alluring.
A lurking Bat plunged into me.
He fed me with squeaks and clicks,
Swirling in me, taking sips of me.
My eddies became smaller and fainter,
Jaded then drained.

Once in a few full moons,
I’d speak with a Butterfly.
He’d spread his wings for me
And drop another pollen.
