fern in winter

a question mark
waving in the wind,
holding to the fetal curl
and the safety of the winter womb.
not the gentle
kiss of sun,
nor stream voice,
can coax
that frond
to unfurl
one single moment
before it does.

Danna Faulds from “Go In and In” Poems from the Heart of Yoga

May we all connect to our intuitive wisdom and unfurl at the right time.

  2. This is SO correct. We need to stay curled up sometimes. That is when we are doing the preparatory work for the unveiling of our magnificence.
    Marvellous poem!
