the ground

I found the ground in a puddle of sunlight

like a needle in a haystack

where roots can grow

instead of floating in unsustainable temporality

for sunlight fades to moonlight every time

why be surprised by predictability?

but earth stays firm in night and day

bright skies or rain

and earth always lies in the low places

where growth can truly happen.

liminal spaces - where learning takes place

need firm foundations - lest we float off into space
