(Photo by me.)


the sword ferns are pushing
their tiny, tightly-furled heads
through the brown earth under
the massive magnolia tree.

they remind me of myself pushing
through the brown goo of inertia
that holds me in it’s slimy grip under
massive roots of impassivity.

Flowers will bloom on the Magnolia tree.
Will I?
