for LMH

I will grow anywhere that I am
planted, like the dandelion suns, wild
and free. I will roll
like the resurrection tumbleweeds, 
thirsty for the right moment and ready
for the hope that blooms
with spring, if only I am patient. I am
as strong as the prickly cactus. I am
fluid as the honeysuckle's sweet scent. I, too,
can conquer steel.
My love is a fenceless love.
And wherever adventure halloos, from the stars
to the tree line, just look and you will
find me there.
