Button lies heavy.
It’s hard, black surface
Standing still and
Finding small comfort
Among the shiny, wrinkled ribbons
Of deep red.

Button reaches –
Touching the sister ribbon
Of faded yellow-green
Wanting what the ribbons have.

Ribbons so entangled.
Enmeshed in the softness
That cloud-like yarn offers
In gratitude.

They hardly notice
Button’s earnest effort;
Feeling only the weight.
Glass button, a sharp contrast.

Button, oh ill shaped button
Not a square, nor a circle
Who made you?

How is it you have landed here?

One is holding,
Sitting with unbearable longing,
Impatient, waiting, trembling.

The other is bursting
Playing, full out
Alive.

One has begun
The unfolding process
Aware.

I so dislike the word
Process.

I want it all now.

Flower
Peeking from its very own petals
Girl rising from her previous
Self consciousness.

Fear shrugged off
Light warms.
Joyful.

The circle folds
An unknown breathe
Pushing.

Stitches like tiny organisms
Swim in rows and almost parallel lines
Chasing.

Daring to reach.

Stitches the color of hot fire
Light as air, close upon each other
Stretching.

Coming forward.

Stitches as though mini dancers
Intertwined as energy pours forth
Consenting.

A base of wild chaos hardly aware
And, darkness creating contrast
The circle forms.

Spiraling to life.

A rose is born
A life of one’s own
Created!
