To Trust and Allow


I asked for a miracle    
it wasn’t granted        
or so I thought

Turns out                         
I didn’t recognize it,         
so certain was I of     
how it would look  

Turns out
the Universe upgraded       
to a newer version       
perfect for me         

Turns out
I am again awestruck by    
the power of trusting     
and allowing

gnarled tree roots contort  

anchored to earthly mother
