Cosmos Haiku Triad

Accidental seed
Awakened in cement seam
Pushing toward light.




Eyes of the cosmos
Gaze deeply into blue soul
Wind breathes sunset smoke.




Resilient knowledge
Speaks of earthly blood and light,
Spilling outward now.


I have no idea when the seed that grew into this most beautiful cosmos fell into the sidewalk crack.

And I don’t know why it grew this year and not last year. (Because I certainly didn’t put any seeds of that variety in this year.)

But somehow, it held on, and it’s there.
