Securing Sunshine

In the oldest forests

a thousand seedlings die

in darkness

When one of the giants falls

there is an explosion

of green things

desperate youth

In these spaces everything

reaches upwards a thousand

faces searching for


We all need space to grow

Transitions are both painful and beautiful.

For more stories of light and transition, The Guests of Honor, is available here. Its sequel, With Honor Intact, can be found here.
