life moment

to my surprise today
I noted a blooming impatience
reaching toward the light
ignoring the fact it is February
and the ground is covered in snow

must have been a seed
that quietly fell into the earth
was buried
and hidden
for months ...

something has called it forth
to bloom

no one knew it was there
no one saw anything different in the soil

in the midst of winter
a bloom of summer popped up

and sometimes that is the way it is

seemingly randomly planted
for a long time

a bloom appears
a flower unfolds
in the middle of a winter

a glimpse of summer

in a pot of ferns
a single impatience

no use pointing out the season is wrong
for this new life to bud and bloom

no use pointing out the locale is wrong
this pot only meant for ferns

when it is time to bloom
simply stand your ground
lift your head
and let your beauty shine
