Grow Where You Are Planted

A haiku about hope and faith.

photo by Linda Caroll

Scooped up by the wind,
we fall into the dark. Grow
where you are planted.

It sits there delightfully, 9.1 kilometers after you turn off the highway
to forever and onto the bumpy old country road. A broken down
car with a tree growing out of the hood.
