The courage to put out leaves

Written April 16, 2016, particularly appropriate in spring time –


Wait, She says
for I am here
surround your struggles
in your love
and I will surround you
in Mine.


The courage to put out leaves
to let them fill with 
self and hope
to receive
life and nourishment
and joy 
for a season
and then fall.

Roots are easy
deep within
you can grow
with only
rot and vermin 
to fear

Draw up strength my love
leaves are necessary
be brave.
