Blooming and Roots

Life is bloom, stem, and root
dependent on the soil upon which
breath depends.

And Lent is the
autumnal season
when darkness nurtures
and the cold wind soothes
battle-weary souls.

The flower has faded
the bloom has dropped
but the word of our God stands
forever drawing roots
deeper still

These roots enable
a skyward reach
grasping for that bird bearing
that olive branch in her beak
come rest here awhile,
come nest here awhile,
we all could use a little hope in our branches
from time to time.
