An Understanding Stem

What does today bring
after a night of wondering
so far a morning's chill
rooted like a long stem
unsure of what to do
but try to reach the sun.

A narrow-minded view
no branch or petals to expand
constricted in its growth
by a misconstrued youth of rocks
and understandings of its earth.

This stem, which tried to grow
simply never knew - another way
but when it looked around
all it saw were flowers
and all they seen - was its dismay.

What does today bring -
will it bring the warmth
or a petal…. or two
so a stem can hope - and learn
that it's not about it or them
but about an understanding sun
and an understanding stem.
