The start of something?


I lit a little fire

Planted a small seed

maybe one will warm my heart

the other hunger feed


I’m being rather quiet

It’s not a lot like me

Trying to protect the spark, the soil

I guess that we shall see…


It’s hard getting nothing back

Sometimes you have to wait

and perhaps I’m even learning

about blooms that happen late


Autumn’s fallen, a time to reap

But I’ve just sown my bed

So I’ll have to lie in it awhile

see what’s up ahead


It’s easy enough to begin

‘specially when you start small

And ending’s a fine thing

But to continue… right now: that’s all
