Flowering into Poetry

Layers of accumulated 
silence have built up 
over the years, 
producing a rich compost.

Combining earth's elements
into fertile ground 
for seeds of creativity 
to germinate.

Roots extending toward
life-giving moisture
searching the soil
for nourishing ideas.

New stems emerge,

breaking the surface,
seeking the warm light
of inspiration.

Surging with life,
opening its leaves,
gathering into verses,
flowering into poetry.

The land provides.
The heart responds.
The soul is gratified.
The Creator is glorified.
