Nature Fixed

Most plants stay grounded while they grow

Bloom, and show

Their beauty, colors, and fragility

But this one has been uprooted; lacking humility

The sun refused to shine

Roots of deception and pride invaded

Where humble beginnings became jaded

Prideful ingenuity with rain grew

Feeding on the honesty of the new

Much like the dodder

But not exactly so

This plant will still grow

After a torrential storm sweeps it away

Its likeness of the dodder will fade and fray

The sun relents and allows

A species of  lone

Awareness; parasitic pride now gone

Its petals open wide with newness of grace

Where strewn seeds from the storm landed in a place

Called home

Humbly grounded

    I really like the theme of redemption/salvation in this poem – it makes one feel very hopeful
