Full of life, full of brilliance
Like a library full of flowers
Rich with love

The little birds flutter through
Taking the brave trip
To bring life to the garden

They drop a seed from  Tennessee 
One that will grow
Big, bold, brave and generous

The roots hide any forgotten,
And every hard goodbye 
But also bring life to new beginnings 
New connections

The mamma flowers dance with their babies
They dance to the sweet songs of the world
Encouraging their beaming 
Colors to shine through

Powerful pinks
Open-hearted oranges

The light shines in on the plants
Graciously approachable 
They harbor life and safety 
For the newfound butterfly 

Connecting with the world
For the first time

Creating a path for new
deeply beautiful connections
Kristin Partlo
