Grounded

by Melissa   Aug 10, 2014


Truth needs not be spoken
to open its vocal cord
no, it beats those exquisite wings
without sound, spewing conviction like little seeds
that punctuate the ground with bloomy things

Nuzzling into nature,
becoming true, simple

You can't blame a flower
for being a flower
all wordless with proclaim,
its tatty petals not lost on you
