I wrote this poem today inspired by this small flower I saw yesterday on my hike to Thunder Mountain. It’s still a work in progress but here it is in raw form. Tenses and grammar may be all off but the Spirit is there.


The audacity to stay
where you’ve landed.

Accepting the pulling
of your roots; just enough
into this hard, unwelcoming

Receiving what you need;
all of what you need.

Nourishing yourself to
erupt forth,
willing to sprout,
lifted to the heavens.

Reaching to the sun, claiming
your certain blooming.

Life: I belong
to this air
to this light
to this world.

Claim me; place me
in your vase of water.

Enjoy my full open petals
as I celebrate my thriving.
