Where Do You Root Yourself?

Where do you sink your roots?
Can you hold breath above the waterline?
Let your awareness rest
Where Being itself chooses to rest.
 
I cannot promise length of life,
That a flood will not sweep away
Best of intentions or wishes to thrive.
But maybe tomorrow you’ll have a leg to stand on.
Maybe under unlikely conditions,
Under great adversity, you’ll grow
Past fall, past winter, to see another spring.
