planted and multiplied
cultivate the shift
between my perspective and
what I can clearly see you need
when I step back to take in all of you
from what I have asked.
Our garden of nanosecond shifts breathes
with the vitality of life celebrated,
our roots separate but entwined,
leaves spreading unabashedly for an unending sun.
Perspectives tilting like sunflowers to light,
we take turns sipping the water,
soil, space, inspiration
that allow each of us to grow.
