Karen Audioun Klingman

below the garden birthings take place
invisible to the eye
tendrils swallow
stability and nourishment

without notice earth gives way
newborns wear emerald crowns
fragile toddlers peek out
know not purpose or direction

growing pains thwart
yet stretch they will
beyond capability and consequence

in full bloom adults
allow thirst to quench
store strength
for what will come

the wise ones
know it is time
petals drop - leaves wither
essence blows home

burrows deep
nurture cradles
nudges wakefulness
