Blossoming Forever, by Radiance Angelina Petro

Blossoming Forever


Radiance Angelina Petro



At the end of the day, we are all

light-seekers.  In this world of seeming

and guessing, the impulse towards

ever-spring unfolds the flower of longing.


He knows the seasons of consciousness,

the inner purpose of flowers.  He aligns

seeds towards the sun as they sleep.


Darkness is the point of departure.

It is soul-changing, and he uses it

to encourage us to enter the struggle upwards.


Grain seeds found in Ancient Egypt will still grow.

No matter how long we sleep

he will wait forever for the celebration

of flowering, taking slow, simple, sips

of pure contentment.


He knows all about withering, and the falling

of petals.  He knows pain determines

so much.  He knows winter comes, and so,

he turns his light into sweetness, his voice

into warmth, and he cultivates within us a willingness

to accept surprises.

Surprises, like why-questions suddenly unriddled,

surprises, like the sky,

surprises, like eternity,

surprises, like blossoming forever

in his hands.
