From buds and shoots of words
Following an image out on a limb, chasing it as if upon a whim
Looking for wire to support
This metaphor of great import.
At once its clipped
Occupying little air
Space, upon the whitened page
Or sounds within our audio range.
Rigid and contrived
How will the tree live?
Will it thrive?
If cut and prune and bend and chop
Upon its expression we do lop.
Your shoots renew
Let us leave a space for few
To assert the inner plant
Not just our structure, but permit nature grant.

Looking for some stories of hope!

Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news that warms the cockles of our heart. No story is too big or small, as long as it goes beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
Place the WE ARE THE WORLD Badge on your sidebar, and help us spread the word on social media. Tweets, Facebook shares, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month most welcome. More Blogfest signups mean more friends, love and light for all of us.
We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better, and hopefully, make or renew some friendships with everyone who signs on as participants in the coming months.
