A Woman Replanted

I am a woman, replanted.

I wonder if God sees me down here- trying to grow.

I see trees and plants more mighty than I.

I want to grow big and as effectual as they.

I am a woman, replanted.

I pretend the sky, the sun, the clouds, are all on my side.

I feel beautiful nakedness before The One.

I touch and roll in my soil feeling my resilience building.

I worry that someone careless may mow me down .

I cry at toppled trees, toppled bodies.

I am a woman, replanted.

I understand that the old soil was no good for me anymore .

I say, move me God, as you must.

I dream of being all the things I envision .

I try not to fear. 

I hope to be the best version of myself.

I am a woman, replanted.
