Nestling

tell me

about “perfect” 

anything,

and i will point

inside,

roundabout,

and up.

.

i only know

about digging,

the way the soil 

clings,

a second skin,

fusing branches

where i nest,

in the oak

with one root –

as deep

as high.

  1. Can we ever know ourselves? The more I peel away, the more I discover there is more to peel. My search challenges me to trust the Creator that all I might discover is good, and I, and to let the hidden parts unfold in due time. Thank you for another profound post. Ray
