Ode to Seasons (Part 3)

Don’t forget to go back and read Part 1 and Part 2 of this is poem. The first two verses have walked you through the pain of leaving somewhere safe, the hesitation and fear that comes from being “planted” in a place that is unknown, and the first attempts at making relationships in the new “garden”.

To my disbelief my shouts have sprouted

My little arms reach closer to the flowers all around me

I never knew I could grow this much bigger

I bloom with excitement, surprise, joy

My leaves welcome sunshine

My roots thicken as the day grows longer

In the morning I illustrate the song of the birds

My roots are bedded, rested, in familiar dirt
