Selective Pruning

DIGITAL CAMERA

Pruning
Cutting back
Leaving the opportunity for new growth
Pruning
So the plant will be stronger
Inviting
Full
Abundant
Growth
Still connected to what has been cut
Benefiting from the selected cutting
Even amputees remember the physical connection
Through phantom pain
What we see is not everything that exists
What we feel is not everything relating to us
We are connected to our ancestors
Through their abundance
As a result of their pruning
We are connected to generations yet to be
By what we leave behind
By what we nurture
There will be a time we are not seen
When we are only felt
When what we leave behind will
Nurture
