Trust (Dedicated to Lynne Fyncher Spring Garden)


I awoke, sleep ruffled.
I looked across at a pillow,
Sometimes, shared.
I saw a creature, reclining there,
I recognized it,
Trust.

It gazed at me,
With soulful eyes.
Questioning eyes.
Are you about to give me away?
Have you found a home for me?
Trust.

I reflected,
If I give you away,
Today
Into other hands.
Will you be nurtured?
Protected?

Or will your fragility
Be exploited?
Laid bare, for all to see,
My vulnerability?
If I entrust my trust to you,
What will you do?

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
