My venus fly trap, who taught me resilience © 2024 Marieke de Koker


Is that druid

Who risked its life

To render the most magnificent,

Exquisite bloom

Sucking the life out of its veins

In the pursuit of love and new life

There is no love without pain

No beauty without sacrifice

Brave are we

Who live to experience all of life

Without holding back

The etched scars becoming

Our map 

Telling the story of our life
