Would we grow –

Strong and wild –

If we were cast outside neat rows

Instead of withering

On gracious stems

Centerpieces in someone’s life

Oh, to cling to nourishment

Hearty soil to allow us

To set down roots

Raising our heads

Into the sunlight

Basking in our shapes and beauties

To run untamed

And thrive

Set outside tidy little labels

Wildflowers all of us –

Reckless –

Growing upward towards our sun ~ Caroline A. Slee
