Thorns

life can be filled

 with thorns

quiet desiring

vegetative power

to prick the flesh

as a dark friend

writes your words

loaned on your skin

in  blushing bruises.

this only allows

 protection from

the pale monster

 of my shadows.

 

that i have given shape

 with thumbs of deeds

and misshapen needs.

desires in the spaces of my hair

seem to whisper….

 

i prefer to bloom

a secret flower

with petals of 

abundant patience

among the thorns.

suffering is not unkind.

labor for the prize

for in the testing

i may wither

the roots of selfishness

that grow

in the soil of my life

for grace is light

that in quietness suffice

as my words

rain in emptiness

a  love that cannot be extinguish …
