The Vine

petal

on love’s vine,

i sway 

as the world 

shudders

in fear’s 

disillusioned dance.

i will not 

be drawn 

into the mindless

chatter

attaching meaning 

to chaos.

turning the leaf

i choose life’s order

over petty needs, 

and embrace the work,

giving my life

for the way of light.
