Message of Silence

Rising from the inner earth
the slender stalks of peace
push against the hardened soil.
Seeking the air and open sky
of what may yet be
they sip on drunken light
with the sobriety of darkness,
their tiny uncurling arms
sending the message of silence
like lightning into the day.

    Don, I love watching baby plants birthing from the soil, soon unfolding leafy arms, then growing in fullness to flowering and bearing fruit. My dwarf blue lavender are currently in bloom and singing in joyful, silent chorus. Thank you!
