If we could find
beauty in the cracks
those broken
nooks and
crannies of life,

perhaps we would notice
it is the wildflower
who insists on
growing wherever
there is space,
bringing us unexpected
bursts of color and joy.

If we could find
beauty in our cracks
our broken
nooks and
crannies of self,

perhaps we would see
our resilient wildflower
trying to grow wherever
there’s space,
coloring our souls
with bursts
of unexpected joy.

If we have the eyes to notice.
