Grassroots Growth

daylilyprayer.jpg

Brittle hands emptied out,

crisp-crackled in the dying places,

freeze-dried from the endlessness of

to-do lists, the heaped up inadequacies of fertilizing

failures, fold in prayer, the cry of a surrender which

knows its own hollowness at last. And where

empty meets Full, the

green can begin, grassroots growth.
