perfect little wildflower

A little something I put together for my first ever video poetry piece ūüôā

how the dark desert lily became

Motionless she lay

Tracings of a beautiful bouquet


Created with his fingertips

Quivering at her lips


Heat rising to an unbearable level

Deep down rumbles like a bass & treble


Delicately stroking each & every petal

He tended to her; so gentle


Picking away dried up leaves

So she could blossom into a floret at ease


She got trapped in his gaze of adoration

Her vision finally clear, a sudden aeration


Blooming so effortlessly

There she stood strong ‚Äď a desert lily


After years of darkness underground

His light brought her back to life; so she found

my beautiful

you are a portrait of infinite perfection in a universe full of stars & meteors

yet, you alone, are the only celestial that illuminates that sky of yours.

a note to a lover during the solar eclipse

Will you ever come back to me?


To the place where you held my heart so tenderly

In a space where no darkness shone through

Where you and I never held back; tried and true


Because the love we shared

Was more rare than a solar eclipse

Never daring to stare directly at us

a dreaded love apocalypse,

was what you feared


I remember the time you told me

The reflection of the stars were in my eyes

The law of the universe written and actualized

So no need for a telescopee to see


Now I find myself floating aimlessly

Because you ripped away our galaxy

So quickly it was a tragedy


Lost stardust roaming courageously

Waiting until our universes collide again

Holding on tight to our energy shamelessly


As I ask again, will you ever come back to me?



How do you have it all figured out?

July 20, 2017  Р10:45am

I am doing something I do not generally do. I am writing this piece without having it all figured out.

A roadblock that is constantly appearing in my life is this “urge” to make sure all the puzzles pieces fit together perfectly before sharing myself with others.

It’s the perfect harmony to your favorite song. It’s like trying to catch the exact ebb and flow of a wave when surfing. It’s a coloring book filled with pictures that has no color outside the lines (almost impossible ¬†– ask any mother of a toddler).

I think you get the picture, yeah? We can get close to perfect with time and diligent practice. Yet if we never share ourselves then there is no room for imperfection.

There is no space to improve, to grow, or for that matter – make mistakes. There is no time to color crazily outside the lines, get flipped and tumbled around by a wave, or scream at the top of your lungs.

I invite you to share yourself (unapologetically) and create the possibility to receive from others without judgment.

Accept what is by partaking in the beauty of who you are. Especially and most importantly when nothing is figured out.

love, lena xo



there is a gracefulness to her rays

tactfully auspicious

strangers lost in her gaze

lustful and suspicious


seeking her out cravingly

her sunshine; a tragic contagion

light sheds pervasively

creating a world of optimistic contamination


Star dust oscillates through the blood

The taste of a Szechuan bud

Lingering on the tongue


Lightning crashes in one lung

The other overflowing with a starry-eyed sea

Bioluminescence sensuality


Materializing to a feverish energy

The mind lost in reverie


Your bodies no longer grounded

Everything becomes soundless


Each resembling a weightless feather

Serenely fading into a peaceful world together

our subtle light

I never had a hard time loving you
Because I will forever accept you
You came to me far from flawless
As I did to you, definitely not faultless
Our relationship unordinary
Like a tide meeting the ocean; an estuary
All my quiet spots are found within your walls
Our passion and love creating vast waterfalls
A never ending flow of imperfection
Deeply found at a perfect angle of reflection

I mirror you – as you mirror I
Oh, how our light can mystify

perfect little wildflower

My perfect little wildflower,


Just imagine you were perfect

Nothing could break you

Or for that matter, make you


A world of endless diamonds

Sparkling all horizons


Shining out for miles and miles

Lighting up the hills and all the isles


Just imagine you were perfect

Tears of pure love

For the life that you are a part of


Nothing more and nothing less

You are already a victory, a sweet success


Can you even imagine that power?

Because you are all you need to be

My perfect little wildflower
