our story unfolds and grows from a seed...

like a tree

our story unfolds
and grows
from a seed

that stays
close to where
it fell

in the shelter
at times
in the shadow
of its own

kind
kin

or strays
carried on
the wings
of zephyrs

or stows away
carried in
the bowls
of birds

sparrow
crow alike

eventually dropped
coming to rest
far from where
it came

there it starts
a forest
a new

imageedit_149_2492223594

many so
soft and common
as pines

few others
solid and massive
as oaks

imageedit_171_4014582850

still others
mighty s redwoods
tall and proud

sums of us
pusses
but mere shrubs
trim and square
defined as definable
faking boundaries
in lines so very assembly lined

imageedit_165_8786981336.jpg

others of us
susses
of the lot of us
like thickets
wild and unruly
no fence can keep
in vines go easily intertwined

unknown handful
cusses
mysterious and dark
like deadly nightshade
in a belladonic haze
pretty damned crazed
in minds molten eye bloody wined

and as our stories
branch out

as we pass
through the seasons

 

some beautiful
some not at all

imageedit_179_6835856799.jpg

cold
ones
quite
green
others
more
wet
than others
so dry
unbearable
asphyxiating

imageedit_155_8762884318

those seasons
they let us
they motivate us
and show us
how to grow

when to unfold
or leave
and not

some times the winds
of change

bend us
relentlessly
seems

to the point of
breaking

imageedit_152_4672413773

and some do

break

they that survive
although battered
and bruised
still bear
fragrant flowers and
fanciful fruit
least lush leaves

but those

those who do not
bear and give
and bend

they crack
break and snap

are cut down
uprooted
reduced
to splinters

and then

if fit
lit

burned

imageedit_182_7226474363

if
not

rot
