The adapted


In prickly bramble
of berries' roses
in dove's nest

with thorns like knives
cutting their way not painfully but gracefully.

My grief flows
through the soil deep
like a wound that heals
stretching my roots underground
flawed adapting,

On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
