Palettal Prose: In Time to Blossom?

A large cloud swirlscanstock4709918

the uncertainty of spring so vast

it swarths the sun.

For millions o years on Earth

plants existed

endless varieties

of leaf and stem120201094923_1_900x600

and then one morning

114 million years ago,

it happened—

an incredible burst

of fragrance and color

the first flower.

Swollen and aching

like twig ends

all of us know the longingd5a83e6ecead395b5a41df567e755891

to let go

to open, to blossom.

It stirs within each of us

call us to grow

beyond our limitations

tells us there is more

tells us we are more

we are able to give

Water lotus flower blossom

Water lotus flower blossom

what is needed

we can undo

the grip of fear

out-love

the harshness of anger.

Will we take our next step?

The large cloud swirls

spring’s uncertainty so vastRobin calling song

it swaths the sun.

Against this marbled sky

a peach tree reaches

her tender twig ends swollen.

A robin sings.
