From a young sprout, limber and vulnerable

we have draughted from the roots upward

Organic breath.

Emergent.

Hopefulness assured;

Growth stemming from sensory input,

Chlorophyll formation/blood red

Nourishment from light and literacy and love

Keeps to perpendicularity

To stability, to thickness, to evergreen

Flexibility in spirit and muscle,

Bendable, malleable branches

Young at heart wood.
