I SEE YOU.
By Kristen Norman

I’ve been away awhile.
I’m sorry I haven’t
really
been there for you, I was searching myself~~
But, I could be- can be- I will…
be.
And bees wake with purpose.      Heal me
Dance!
Help you
Sing!
To the core of you; to your bone…
Flow~~~ I see daffodils budding ing*ing*ing!
Stretching forms
Of yellow, ribboned
Hope-brights!
~ waiting patiently for warmth, so true…
and for ~~~~ we do not know.

Wait with me…
in quiet measure.

Hush…

The reseeded ones in my own yard
under browned wet leaves most precious this morning, for we only
Hold today.
Grow with me…
together clumped and growing root,
Deeper
into this Earth.
We must return…
Kind rain.
