Grafting

Blossoming happens;

when the root is well.

 

Beauty may not beheld

in an alien soil.

The flower may not be,

because the root fails.

 

But – we can bond shoot

with a hearty root –

native and foreign

kept alive as one.

 

In true union be

they’re not one, not two.

Where joined together,

indeed a weakness.

 

And – with dissonant joint

blossoming happens.
