Deep Anchors

         Deep Anchors

Love's spark ignites
As hope blows softly on embers
Once given up as dead
A phoenix rises from cold ashes

Seed that must die
Fall's into ground
Warmth of sun on dark place
Resurrection birthed in womb

Years of waiting, hoping
Finally wind of life blows
Awakening that which has lain in the ground
Roots gone deep before breaks the soil's crust

Attuned to harsh conditions
Driving deep anchors of soul
Internal transformation grows
Soon external fruit known
