roots

by In All Our Years

To live simply

is to root and nourish our life

as plants do thrive on gifts of

seed, soil, sun, water and rest.

Yet, sometimes,

it is the mind’s desire that

spoils beyond the needs of self.

Still, in time,

it is the soul that longs

for harmony in her journey.

And yes,

it is the soul that ultimately

finds her way,

roots and blossoms.
