Now & Then & Later


Vulnerability peeks from 
My courageous heart - 
Unfolding as the morning glory at
First light, tender and dewy,
Seeking nourishment from 
Sun and storm alike.


Misery beyond ache twisted
My potential into myriad 
Tumbled skeins of thorns -
Rootless and hopeless so 
Thoughts dashed and disintegrated in
my dry desert.


My garden will accept the 
Thorns, integrate and cultivate them, 
Sow them with acceptance
Until they creep towards the light.
Bound to become unbound as
Rootless becomes rooted.
