Reverb10 – December 4 – Wonder


They come in elfin packages
diminutive gifts
from glass houses radiating promises of miracles
And I wonder
         Will they grow?

I loosen the new roost, cold and loamy
hallowing a spot,
height and width eyed to perfection
I wonder
         Will hail pulverize my dream this time?

No bigger than my palm
squeezing then shaking
loosening the anchor
I wonder
         Will my spring zeal linger until fall?

White roots twining
round and round
searching for space, reaching for more
I wonder
         Will summer’s rage wilt or inspire greatness?

Humus now to blanket the innocent
Dampened in baptism
Not to initiate but to nourish
I wonder
         Did He feel the same when He made me?
