DNA Alterations

Held in a bark lined trunk,  

Acorn confusion scattered,  changed with time

held captive in an “enraged” maple mind

 

Locked within

So much color to behold

A young cotyledon forced to grow old

 

Repeat the pattern

Across a treeline, so as to imprint

into a cell, message sent

 

A preconceived plan altered when

recognition occurs

interruptions in growth, vividly stirs

 

Messy and scattered

against a blue sky

Answers needed, unexplained, no reasons why

 

Creator  feeling loss

of life out of control

needing to escape, burning whole

 

“Strength grown out of weakness”

providing new roots as needed

Growing through life, new beginnings greeted.
