Reaching For The SkyThe ground is cool and comforting


The ground is cool and comforting
The water, deep below
Tightly shut and wondering
If this is all you'll know

A single root extends at last
Tasting what's outside
Leading slowly from the past
No longer need to hide

Then the stem begins to form
Reaching for the sky
Touching sun and feeling warm
No longer asking why

Then a bud that's still so tight
Afraid of what will be
The greater world is full of light
And there's so much to see

Opening, the petals feel
Exploring things anew
Experiences that appeal
Love and trust is true

Finally the crown appears
Beauty, soft and sweet
Conquering those ancient fears
The victory a treat
