From seemingly nowhere,
a nub of growth sprouts.
From this small movement, momentum shifts and more
sprouts appear, curled and shy.
when the underside
is revealed and honored.
And sometimes, in peaking beneath a developing sprout, we see evidence of the old or the bruised, maybe appearing not ready to let go into growth.
Sometimes, though, the old and bruised
serves as a foundation, supporting the new growth as it reaches out and up,
joyous for the opportunity to show itself to the world.
Whatever the case,
the old growth and new growth become a synergistic force,
sharing resources and developing into one
From this perspective, all parts are important. Old, new, fresh, degrading, withering, and uncurling. I wonder...can I adopt this perspective for my own growth?
thank you to the lovely SL for inspiring growth in me
