Seedling
Seedling (Photo credit: _sjg_)

the hushed voice inside of me is

straining to erupt

a seedling smothered

with heavy, wet soil

pushing out

reaching for the light

emerging from the

rigid, over-protective exterior

unfolding green

and glistening

growing stronger

with each passing season
