Poem of the Week: Evolving


Pay attention to the smallest
expressions of change,
How slowly the leaf
unfolds. There is no
fast track here, only
The trudging orbit
of our newness. Learn
the perfection of pace
that gives us time
to dig out wisdom,
eons of effort per inch.
Yet, deep secrets may
reside in the lines
on your palm, better
seen when dirty from work.
