She Grew Love

Detail of “Waiting for Summer” by Christian Schloe

She raised herself up
one limb at a time,
reluctant to make noise,
afraid to cause a stir.

Each movement bringing
her closer the place
where her courage
was hidden–waiting.

The little fears she allowed
to have so much room
began to shrink and from
the space, she grew love.
