It’s both and like never before,
both one and two,
both old and new.
A branch of life has broken free.

Yet connected, of course,
to its trunk, its center…to its tree,
to its me.
Life is rooted in deeper than visible.

Nurtured by more, on earth and beyond,
by river, by dust,
by flame and by lust.
Today is more than before by the millions.

Though I’m not sure yet
how to do it with grace,
I feel thankful and blessed
to be put to the test.
I think that will come when we need it.
