In the guise of advice on gardening
Something hidden is percolating
bubbling away, fermenting, brewing.
Something is cocooning, gestating
shaping a future shoot to break through.
Right now it looks like nothing.
From the outside the process seems blank
the absence of anything.
But no, believe me I have seen
I have been in and come out of.
You are healing, releasing, absorbing
as the shift happens from then to now
to what is coming.
If you forgot to trust
remember now…to rest
in the arms of. To not fret
(what is the point…
as energy leaks out your feet).
Trust your patience will bear fruit.
It always has…and will now.
Actively wait for it…as you plant
what you want…and no more.
We trust you
to do what you need to.

I have been writing a poetic journal for 25 years, following healing from multiple sclerosis. This poem (from April, 2016) feels right for today. And still good advice. Take good care. <3
