in order to assist the growth...

February 28, 2011 Candace Morris 3 Comments

in order to spring up from the frozen ground,
all that blooms and blooms again
require light for their soul.

the growth of watching the leaves drop.
the growth of opening and closing with courage.
the growth of fragile branches holding new blooms.
the growth of rooting deep into the earth when the wind stings.
the growth of trusting the way all things have been set in motion.

it all takes photosynthesis.
and seasons.
four of them.

the biting cold.
the sweet fragrance.
the sun's embrace.
the colorful death.

to the seasons, to the light, to the nauseating spin of evolution.
i submit.
