A Limited Hosanna

This poem was published one decade ago in another delightful but short-lived lit magazine entitled “ProCreation”.

A Limited Hosanna

Guilt waters neglect:
plants droop in a month-long
indoor dry spell.

The pernacity of green—
shoots of new growth leave out
in hope of nourishment;
thirsty for the sun,
roots thrust deep
in search of moisture.

Terra cotta potted limits.
Interdependence.
Long-suffering, forgiving.
Grateful for a splash of care:
broad leaves lift up toward a savior,
wave in relief from despair.

c.Darlene Moore Berg
