Fledging Wisdom — A Poem

An artfully altered photo of a cluster of hot pink miniature roses.
“Roses” — C.Birde, 8/21

There –

there it is…

Rub of grit

Scrape of coal


at the center

of all things


in the rose’s

soft pleated heart


in summer’s blue

unclouded sky

Gather it up,

this unfledged


Safeguard &

croon to it

Greet it gently &

grant it

a safe space

to root &


— C.Birde, 8/21
