All the Wonders

Taking Root

Updated: Feb 14

This morning

I saw wildflowers blooming,

Rooted in the cleft of a rock.

Petals waved like

Delicate violet water spouts.


How can it be?

This fragile miracle,

This coming together of seed and soil

Taking root in a granite crag.


We, too, sink

Tender, resilient roots

In precarious places

And bloom.
