if only for a little while,
I became a flower.
I shed my skin,
exposing rainbow-colored petals,
nature’s transformative power.
Entwined and surrounded,
pushed and pulled towards the good,
my body reflected colors and shapes
in an unfolding mystery that can
only be, divinely understood.
I didn’t care that what was
happening to me, made no sense.
It mattered more the way I felt
and it only got more intense.
And it caused me to remember
a time that now I wanted to relive.
The pathway is clear, with nothing to fear,
just the godly-human need to forgive and give.
