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.

Poem by Jessica Grace Sparks
