That Which With Time Given


Unfinished continues a blooming undone.
To have anyone perceive what will be,
Viewed and seen,
In its ultimate beauty yet discovered.
Yet each stage of its development is critiqued.
Should such depictions be kept discreet?
Until the presence of its giving has been complete?

And those who have come to witness,
Each stage of its revealing growth...
Can not possible know,
To what degree of magnificence...
Awaits them to be finally witnessed,
Since...
That which with time given is still unfinished.

No one knows,
In what direction a blossoming of a blooming goes.
Since...
That which with time given is still unfinished.
Unfinished until the doing is complete.

No one knows,
In what direction a blossoming of a blooming goes.
Until the presence of its giving has been complete?
And with a time given to finish...
Prepared and ready for those who critique with expertise.

That which with time given,
Blossoms.
That which with time given,
Blooms.
That which with time given,
Blossoms.
That which with time given,
Blooms.
