Unfurling

“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.”

— Theodore Roenthke

I see this blossom

each morning unfurling

to find the light,

reaching out to touch 

a ray of sun, warmth 

necessary for life;

its roots stretch down 

into moistened earth 

as morning brings on 

the day’s thirst.  

I complete that same 

search upon rising —

I need my daily quench; 

my warmth the Son; 

my drink living water;

my soul the bloom 

unfurling to find 

the light.
