Apprentice

turtle-dont-be-afraid-to-be-vulnerableI began the new year
with skin
exposed to sheets of rain

and an apprenticeship
to vulnerability,
a master craftsman
soothing a tenderfoot’s
tender heart
pierced with perceived
ruin

no protection
because there’s nothing
to be protected from
no fear
because there’s nothing
to fear
knowing that once again
water rolls
through a parched land

the same trust
that sees
even the darkest shadows
radiate
like a beacon
signalling home

Haiku for Living Where you Fear to Live:

unfurl and grow
your vulnerability
and strength will follow
