 Will the Circle Be Unbroken       
I find of late, in quiet times,
With softer step and gentler rhythm,
Miles apart from madding crowd
In introspection I am bidden
To slip the rough protective coat
That useful proved in growing up
But now impedes the tender shoot
That seeks new light on which to sup.
The fingers of Your warming smile
Are gentle on my spirit's husk
As slowly opened to the day
My world of drear eternal dusk
Dissolves to find a richer life
And root descends to depths unknown
To anchor there mid ages past
Where sage's paths are wont to roam.
When duly anchored, growth begins,
At first I feel so meek and thin
But bursting from my earthly tomb
My cotyledon now ascends
To heights that give a different view,
A different world, a different read,
Than what I dreamed of in the earth
When I existed as a seed.
I seem forever in the Light
And in Your smile do fully flower
Leaning down You deign me kiss
As all around my fragrance showers,
On and on this dance sustains
A life I thought would never end
But then one windy day in fall
I find that I begin to bend
And getting lower to the earth
I see where time is going to lead
And so release into the wind
The quintessential gift...a seed.
