One woman's journey to becoming Her True Self

My Life As A Bonsai August 12, 2010

Growing for years,

Beginning to be established.

Life is the Ultimate Gardener.

I am Cut Down and Brutalized.

I am nothing but a Stump.

But after successive Springs

gradually New Shoots grow.

New leaves to disguise

The Scars.

A little guidance; I am Wired.

And soon

I am smaller.

A more compact version

of what I was.

But more deliberately shaped

and trained.

I am an Art Form.

_______________________________________________

I wrote this yesterday and thought it deserved to stand alone as  a permanent post rather than under the poetry section.  I have recently become interested in trying to train a bonsai tree, and will probably embark on that journey in the Spring. 

Hopefully will have my home internet back on by Wednesday, and will have new entries on a more regular basis.

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,

D.
