Magnolia Speaks: A Poem for Spring

IMG_0623[1]I am full and ready to burst with growth
Reach up and out with my whole being
Put my whole self out on this limb
Vulnerable, I know, to wind and storms and cold

Reach up and out with my whole being
Free and unafraid, confident of my beauty and purpose
Vulnerable, I know, to wind and storms and cold
I openly embrace all that is

Free and unafraid, confident of my beauty and purpose
I put my whole self out on this limb
I openly embrace all that is
I am joyful and eager to blossom

– Peg Conway

Image and poem both emerged through activities of the Abbey of the Arts’ online Lenten retreat.
