Solo for Two

I’ve tried to save this tamarack 
from being overrun by a tangled web of choking vines. 
I’ve cut so many fountainheads arising from the ground
but still somehow that sucker thrives.
No more!

There comes a point when Nature’s austere Grace is seen for what it is.
Calamity is intentional and only evolution is the way.
Similarly the world repeats itself
and not because it doesn’t know its history
but just because it’s caught within that history.

Forgiveness is protection.
Compassion is the guide.
The trail precedes beyond
the tamarack and choking vines
and only I can follow mine.
