How They Grow

Wildflowers grow without
rooted in the secret order
of quietness.
Edges get rounded down.
Nature offers no straight lines
or right angles.
Wouldn't you rather run your
fingers through black loam
than scroll through golden rules?
What you really seek
is the fragrance of chaos,
like a moth on a purple aster,
the intimate fragility
of mountain meadows.
Surrender first.
Strip off the armor
of Should.
Then fight your valiant battle
for beauty.
"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow:
they do not toil or spin." ~Matthew 6:28
