Growth

I tried to control you.  To tame and shape you into what I wanted.  But always, you challenged me, continuing along an almost predetermined path.  I am no match for nature, for your true spirit.  By stepping back I have watched you grow and reach for the future.

      Thank you, although I think nature deserves most of the credit. It is always so inspiring.

      Thank you Laura (although that vine grows so fast that sometimes I think it is fully alive!)

  4. So true how letting go can be hard, but they will find the way!
