Love after Love: Derek Walcott. A Man’s Love Poem

Beloved Flower Lover,

Charmed by what we wanted to see more of. Our in breathe was held, held, held until we could hold it in no more.   Aaaaaaaahhhhhh. Breathe totally released. Full on. We felt the tingle from the feelings of absorbing ourselves inwardly. Fully engrossed inwardly. Fully immersed inwardly. Fully taken over inwardly, totally preoccupied in our bodies inwardly. Inwardly receptively to  this man’s love. Inwardly.

We found a center point and our floral inspirations were re triggered.

Connected to the heartbeat throbbing of this man’s intensely orgasmic poem about love again after failed love. He illuminates the dramatic flowering of our life experiences. Yes, we are feeling it because many in our team can relate like so many of our gorgeous, awesome readers.

Like the first time we made love to a beloved, we felt the hot flash of real joy and pleasure as we were able to share a love poem by the 1992 Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature Derek Walcott.

We felt like we had struck gold, as we noticed the hot glint of expectations, as we imagine how you may enjoy this man’s love poem. This ‘warm’ man expressing, what we felt was the bud energy that repatterns heart break, back to heart healing and then into the energy of joy from within your own heart. All by allowing the enjoyment of the natural blossoming power of love to open freely in it’s own natural time.

We look forward to how it affects you and sculpts your heart…


As we opened up more deeply to receive the comfortable intimacy of the message we listened to the reading more closely. More comfortably. We felt the blush of the emotion, nestled in the tight bud of this outpouring. We remain positively open to it’s perfectly relaxed and sobering blossoming in life. So we explored the golden depths of this experience as we activate ideas of floral designs, that express this abundant journey.

Now we can share what we have found. Those forces of nature, which we invite you to see blossom in your heart. In general they are about how ‘your own heart allows yourself’, to allow yourself to feel what ever it is you want, within your own heart.  Feeling good energetically. Removing the fears whilst putting even more loving absorbing attention into things we really love. So much that it becomes the huge focus, absorbing our attention and requiring our energy, thus making the fears small in comparison, within your heart of hearts.  Keeping the heart open and lovingly absorbed without the  fearful demands of love, whilst enjoying your preference for love.

…and maybe allow flowers in your life to remind you of the energy of a loving heart. The energy of a big huge attracting smile. The attracting energy of you smiling, so brightly, that you can only enjoy the gladness of love. Especially a heart beautifully softened by releasing the demands of love…..  After such a build up here goes…

Love After Love
by Derek Walcott (1930-)

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
